Kwelera Botanical Garden

Kwelera Botanical Garden

The last of the botanical gardens to be established in South Africa, the Kwelera Botanical Garden in the Eastern Cape derives its name from the Khoi name "Goerecha" which means "many aloes". A short drive from East London, the gardens encompass the pristine coastal dune forest, natural vegetation, marine frontage and coastal grasslands.

While not yet open to the public, a soon-to-be attraction of the garden will be a walking trail from the garden into the dune forest linking it to the nearby Kwelera Nature Reserve. The garden promises to be the spectacular experience for revellers to enjoy the wonder of the Wild Coast Region.

Attractions in the area currently include the Kwelera Nature Reserve and the popular Strandloper Hiking Trail which runs for 60kms on the pristine beach, dunes and forest. B&B'ss and Guesthouses are available in Kwelera offering travellers accommodation for holiday visits.
