“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.” -
