Celebrate this festive season at a Botanical Garden near you

18 December 2013

Garden picnicThe festive season is upon us and if you haven’t made any plans, a National Botanical Garden near you is the perfect place to spend quality time with your loved ones and reflect on the past year.

Bring a picnic basket and relax while surrounded by nature or enjoy a wide range activities including art exhibitions, walks, hiking, shopping at craft markets and Garden shops, wild-life spotting and even music from some of South Africa’s most beloved artists. See our events pages and individual Garden pages for more information.

All nine of SANBI’s National Botanical Gardens will be open every day during the festive season (including Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) at the usual operating hours. Garden entrance fees will also remain unchanged during this period. Should you want to enjoy meals at Garden restaurants please contact the restaurant concerning their operating times during this holiday season. Picnicking is allowed in all the gardens, but only the Free State and KwaZulu-Natal Gardens have designated braai areas. Please visit your Garden's visitor information page on the website for more details.

Serene but magnificent, these remarkable hubs of fauna and flora are the ideal place to make lasting memories with friends and family this festive season. Come join us.


- SANBI wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
