The Lowveld National Botanical Gardens is one of the few places in Nelspruit where you can escape the city, while in the city. Our Nelspruit accommodation is just a short drive from these stunning gardens and you can spend your day here, picnicking, walking the paths and making memories.
The gardens were first created in 1969, by the Nelspruit Municipality. There was the hope that the gardens would promote tourism while also educating visitors about conservation as well as about the immense diversity of flora that makes up the garden. In September 1971, the gardens were opened to the public.
The land was donated by the municipality as well as HL Hall & Sons. Of the entire garden, only 165 hectares of land is cultivated. The rest of the land has been left to grow naturally, only slightly maintained where necessary, such as on paths or in the open picnic area.
