Free State National Botanical Garden

Free State, South Africa

The uniqueness of the Free State National Botanical Garden is in its Succulent Garden and Garden of Hope. The Succulent Garden aims to introduce visitors to some of the succulents found in South Africa’s nine provinces. The Garden of Hope has been created as a symbol of hope for all people affected and living with HIV and AIDS. This unassuming treasure trove is home to about 400 species of plants.

This Garden also boasts 140 species of birds, 54 species of reptiles and almost 32 species of mammals. This magnificent Garden lies just outside Bloemfontein in a valley between picturesque dolerite koppies. Garden facilities include a restaurant, a Visitor Centre, Lapa for hire and an Environmental Education Centre.
