Nelspruit Lowveld Botanical Gardens

I visited this enchanting place 1 week ago, and I can honestly say I hadn’t expect it to be at the standard it is in.It is meticulously well kept,choccers with all things botanical and even has its own waterfalls and hippos.The restaurant was excellent too (some lucky couple was having their wedding there on the day-it looked like something out of a fairytale with all the tissue butterflies hung from the trees!).I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area:its right in the middle of Nelspruit,and a lovely addition to any trip to the area.

    hey sarah, sounds great. durban’s botanic gardens also has an excellent restaurant, with the best scones and crumpets around 🙂

    I have always meant to go to the Durbs one and never managed the time….next trip,hopefully!The crumpets certainly are a powerful incentive 😀 Patrick,I have no idea what the flower is called,maybe someone on here would know?
