To have a panoramic view of the city of roses, visit Naval hill which gets its name because of the two British naval guns standing on the hill since early 20th century.
The naval hill is also a home to the Franklin game reserve which serves as the major centre of display of African wildlife. There are animals like zebra, blesbok, springbok, giraffe and eland as well as abundant bird life. The entry to the reserve is free.
Another landmark of naval hill is the statue of white horse- a sculpture set during the Anglo-Boer war. It is a landmark of the British cavalry returning to the depot and has many myths surrounding it.
