Review of Safari Garden Centre
The marketing overview of Safari Garden Centre makes it sound like a little piece of heaven on earth... And it truly is! Wether you are interested in purchasing plants, or simply want to run away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Safari Garden Centre is the perfect getaway.
Tired of the city and in serious need of a hug from nature, we decided to give Safari Garden Centre a visit. And what a relaxing day it turned out to be. We literally got lost for hours looking at the massive array of plants on display. The little meandering pathways took us from flowers to ferns, conifers to succulents, big plants to little baby plants.
Just when you think there can't be more, Safari Garden Centre amazes you again. The lakes and waterfalls are magnificent, with the giant koi gleaming in the sun.
We really did not plan on purchasing anything, but alas, the plants were so inviting, we simply could not resist. And at the affordable prices offered by Safari Garden Centre, we did not even have to break the budget.
After walking around for hours, we decided that it was time for a nice lunch and something to drink. I can really recommend the restaurant. The food was of excellent quality, and the staff friendly and fast.
Although I do not have children of my own, I can really imagine the kiddies absolutely loving the kiddies area. The jungle gym looked like so much fun, I almost climbed onto it myself :)
So, do yourself a favour. Take the family, and get lost in the garden paradise that is Safari Garden Centre.
