24. mai 2019, inke - Tourism

The only botanical garden in Namibia is located in Windhoek and is less known than the Zoo Garden or the Parliament Garden. It lies just a few hundred metres further south hidden on a hill in the direction of Klein Windhoek. A visit to the national botanical garden is definitely worth it. A patch of wilderness in the middle of the capital can be found here, with hiking trails and benches with beautiful views. The twelve-hectare site also houses the building of Namibia's National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI).
