Free State National Botanical Garden reviews
I had just a few spare hours before my flight. So I spent an hour or so walking around here. Pleasant enough and maintained well. I enjoyed my visit. more »
We are in Bloem for a few days and will be relocating here soon. Came with the family and enjoyed it. So relaxing to have a picnic and forget that you are in the city. Thank you more »
The gardens look amazing. There are boards available everywhere with additional information on trees and plants. There is also a fabulous trail that goes up alongside the hill, with beautiful views of the area. More than enough space to picnic. It's a shame that the jungle gym has been removed.
The gardens are beautiful and the grass is green. I like the coffee that the restuarant makes. The hiking trail is nice, and it feels like you're going on an adventure when you take it. I would really recommend anyone to go there. But, i took my girlfriend to the gardens today, on a picnic, and one of the men working there took pictures of us. It was weird.
