Harold Porter Botanical Garden

Harold Porter Botanical Garden is conveniently situated on the whale route of South Africa, about an hour's drive from Cape Town. For guests with green fingers the garden is a welcome rest stop and one can also have a bite to eat or midday coffee and tea at their restaurant.

The garden is on land donated by an earlier farmer of the area - Harold Porter. A stop here can be done on some of our Garden Route tours or a day trip to Hermanus while exploring the whale route from June to November. It is also minutes away from a colony of African Penguins found in the town of Betty's Bay.

This beautiful garden is located in the middle of the coastal fynbos where the flora is thought to be at its richest. It provides unforgettable views of mountains, gorges, forests and ocean. The vegetation includes restios, sedges, bulbs, as well as special salt plants. Harold Porter Botanical Garden is also known for beautiful waterfalls and pools.

The main fynbos vegetation such as protea, ericas and restios can be found along with irises, daisies and orchids. The Garden is a natural home to the Red Disa as well as The King Protea - The national flower of South Africa.
