Lowveld Botanical Gardens Nelspruit Mpumalanga South Africa

The turnoff to the Lowveld Botanical Gardens is situated on the R40 to White River, about three kilometres from the centre of Nelspruit. Set in spectacular scenery on the banks of the Crocodile River, this is one of Mpumalanga 's most magnificent botanical gardens featuring a waterfall and many rare lowveld species.

The huge diversity of plants includes South Africa's best collection of indigenous ferns, 500 tree species and the rare cycads for which the garden is famous. A number of trails meander through the garden, which is at its best in summer.

Even people who aren't interested in gardening will be impressed by the beauty and variety of the indigenous plants. Trail maps are available at the new Lowveld Botanical Gardens entrance gate.
