About

The gardens were created as a result of plant rescue missions to mitigate the impact of the Katse Dam, particularly spiral aloes.  The collection has a focus on traditional Sesotho medicinal plants and has a large seed bank.  At an altitude of 2,229 meters it claims to be the highest botanical garden in the southern hemisphere.
