Fodor's Review

With several hundred species of indigenous flora, including succulents, aloes, and trees, the Karoo National Botanical Garden has been billed as one of the most important such collections in the world. The Braille Garden is geared toward the visually impaired. If you phone ahead, you can arrange to watch a slide show and take a guided walk through the gardens and the collection houses for around R85 per person. Unfortunately, they won't do the tour unless there are at least seven people. The garden lies on the opposite side of the N1 highway from the town of Worcester but is easy to find if you follow the signs eastward from the last set of traffic lights on High Street. Follow the road from the entrance to the garden to the main parking area, the starting point of three clearly marked walks.
