Free State National Botanical Garden

- South African National Biodiversi­ty Institute

“This garden, on the outskirts of Bloemfonte­in, spans a valley between picturesqu­e dolerite koppies. The natural vegetation comprises tall grassland and woodland, dominated by magnificen­t wild olive and karee trees. The harmony of the Garden has been achieved by retaining and highlighti­ng the best elements of the natural landscape. From November to March, most of the plants in the Garden are in full leaf and from March to June the colourful autumn shades of yellow and red dominate. The natural areas of the Garden are a haven for wildlife, including 144 bird species, 54 reptile species and about 32 mammal species.” -
