Johannesburg, Gauteng

Discover the breath-taking Witpoortjie Waterfall, beautifully landscaped indigenous gardens and a nature reserve along the Roodekrans Ridge. This Garden covers almost 300ha of landscaped and natural veld areas, consisting of a mosaic of grassland and flora with dense bush in kloofs and along streams. A breeding pair of majestic Verreaux’s Eagles nest on the cliffs alongside the waterfall.

The variety of habitats accommodates over 600 naturally occurring plant species. The Garden is home to an abundance of wildlife with over 220 birds species recorded on site. There are also a number of reptiles and small mammals, including small antelope and jackals, which occur naturally in the Nature Reserve. A Geological Display Garden exhibiting rocks and mining minerals such as gold and platinum is wonderfully landscaped for viewing.
