The Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden was officially founded in 1982, but the area’s natural beauty had made it a popular destination since the 1800s. Spread out over 300 hectares, the garden protects the indigenous ‘Rocky Highveld Grassland’, which blends grassland, savanna, and dense bush. Along with over 600 plant species, an abundance of animals call the gardens home, including over 220 recorded bird species. Of these, the most famous are the pair of breeding Verreaux’s (Black) Eagles, who have made their nest next to the garden’s beautiful, 70 meter waterfall.
