The vist to the Ndebele huts was very interesting and educational, with the botanical walk really enjoyable and informative. The Mokha Restaurant provides good lunches, although prices can be steep for some things. In a beautiful location with the ducks and water keeping children entertained, the reataurant itself is tastefully decorated and has safe parking outside.
The Gardens itself is great for picnics, no ball games or rough sports allowed but nature in the concrete jungle with a walk to the waterfall and around the koppie. A dassie or two can be spotted and it is a treat for the nature lover
