On visiting the garden:


Apart from its interests to gardener and horticultural groups, the garden is also a treat for the general public. We offer a number of courses throughout the year as well as events.  To browse and book courses, click here.


Visiting the garden is possible for groups larger than 10 but this is only by prior arrangement and during certain times of the week.  Please contact us for more information.


We regret that unless we are offering a specific event, the garden is not open over weekends or at night and is not available for hire for events and celebrations.


A charge applies for visits to the Garden with all profits going to Guide Dogs For The Blind.

For tour guides:


The garden takes about an hour to an hour and a half to enjoy and can be a useful stop off on the way to other city attractions such as the Apartheid Museum or Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens.  Safari groups often visit us on their way out to the bush.


If possible we require the names of those who will be attending in advance (for security reasons) as well as advance payment from whoever is coordinating the group.


We charge R250/pp and this includes a brief into ruction to the garden and its history. All proceeds go to support Guide Dogs For The Blind.  If you require coffee/tea, these are charged over and above the standard visiting rate. R30 for tea/coffee and biscotti (or similar).


We regret that we do not open the garden for groups smaller than 10 unless under exceptional circumstances.


Whether arriving by coach or quantum, vehicles will not be able to drive into the property, rather, they may park outside and the guard will allow named guests access to the garden through the pedestrian gate.
