De Wildt Herbal Centre (Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre)

Also known as the Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre, the De Wildt Herbal Centre is famous in South Afrca, and is a family day out that will delight children with its fairy garden and other attractions as much as adults who go there to learn about herbs and natural gardening.

The Centre is considered one of South Africa’s best gardens, designed to teach people about herbs and traditional healing.
The garden is divided into several sections, from fragrant herbs to cosmetic herbs and healing herbs, and also features a walking labyrinth – copied from the labyrinth at the Chartres Cathedral in France and designed to ‘re-balance’ those who walk its paths. There is also a zen sand-garden and a fairy garden, a giant chessboard, chapel, nursery, tea-garden, an apothecary and a shop.

The Centre holds regular workshops, classes and open-days.

For more info and to book a class or workshop on herbs, healing plants and natural herbal remedies, or organic gardening and principles.

Please note: The Herbal Centre is only open to the public on Wednesdays and every first Saturday of the month.

Getting there: From Hartbeespoort take the R513 Pretoria North rd for 2.8km to a sharp bend in the rd (by a patch of gum trees), then turn at the yellow sign that says no.16.
