Free State National Botanical Garden, Bloemfontein Reviews

  • The gardens are very well maintained and the staff are very friendly and the ablutions are clean. There are nice hiking trails and a really nice restaurant with good food and nice service. Packing your own snacks and a blanket is just as nice though. There is enough space for many people to have nice picnics on weekends. There are nice benches and lots of trees also available. The entrance fee is not a problem to pay at all when you can see that it is being utilized effectively. This is an excellent venue for photographers doing photo shoots for people!

  • Beautiful outside settings under the trees. At the restaurant the service was not up to standard at all. Gardens are well maintained and beautiful.

  • Not quite as extraordinary as Kirstenbosch, still lovely (with rugged beauty of the Free State). Nice place to reconnect with nature and your inner self...

  • Very peaceful place to go and have a pic-nic or just to have a stroll

  • Nature, tranquil and relaxation - Unwind a bit.... Beautiful indeed
