This 76 ha urban oasis is a pristine getaway situated in the eastern suburbs of South Africa’s administrative capital, Pretoria. The garden, which is surrounded by urban development, offers a much needed green area and corridor for wildlife in the eastern suburbs of Pretoria. The ridge that runs through the garden, the natural grassland and lawned areas containing beds of indigenous plants, offer a habitat for many animal species. A concerted effort is made to record the biodiversity treasures within the garden’s boundaries. Various biodiversity surveys have already been or are being conducted, e.g. insect diversity that includes a butterfly, spider and frog survey.
