Description

The surrounding large numbers of Aloe trees dotting the area around the National Botanical Gardens will be the first thing striking your eyes!  The entrance to the gradens is at Orban Street 8 and before entering you'll pass throgh the National Botanical Institute where you can get maps and lists of species to be found in the garden if you wish.  Namibia is the driest country south of the Sahara desert therefore you definetely won't see a kind of "green"botanic garden except during the rainy seasons from December to April.  At all other times you'll be visiting, you'll enjoy those fascinating subtle shades of brown, earth colours, olive tones of green and greys and blacks of the high land savanna vegetation!

A very interesting sight to see while visiting is the Desert House, opened in 2007; there you'll be seeing a variety of "succulents" such as the delicate Sperrgebiet with its little white flowers as if made of glass...many of these plants are endemic to Namibia and you might find them in bloom at any time of the year! It's a great place for drawing, sketching, so get your pastel colours and charcoals ready for catching brilliant sketches of those desert marvels!
