A bit of the Overberg in 2021

The Caledon Botanical Garden

It was three years ago we visited the Caledon Botanical Garden. It is the oldest ‘officially recognised’ botanical garden of South Africa.

We love this garden for several reasons. First of all mainly endemic plants and secondly the informal (more natural) character. It’s not a ‘tourist trap’ as several others with traces of herbicides and ‘indigenous flora’ partly endemic to Namibia and Botswana (although parts of SA -North West, Northern Cape- are natural distribution areas. It does not look neat either with manicured hedges and shrubs.

So, it was time for another visit today. Still that natural look we like BUT what a decline in basic maintenance with amongst others loose bridge-railings and broken planks (rest areas).

That sat aside; worthwhile the visit!!!
