Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens
Not known for being an especially green city, this oasis in the
west side of Johannesburg covers 741 acres (300ha), offering lush
gardens and scenic hiking trails. The gardens are a terrific place
for bird watching (over 200 species) and garden-enthusiasts
interested in seeing a variety of flora and fauna (over 600
species). After a walk or hike, it is common practice to enjoy a
picnic on the lawns at the foot of the breathtaking Witpoortjie
