Situated between the Skukuza staff village and the golf course, the Indigenous Plant Nursery is a worthwhile diversion for anyone visiting the Kruger National Park.
Run by SANParks Scientific Services Department, the nursery has been developed as a hub of botanical research encompassing a wide spectrum of programmes that benefit the entire park. It also plays a role in facilitating education to visitors, staff and particularly school learners about the value and unique attributes of our botanical heritage, its role in biodiversity and the need practice plant conservation on a global scale.
The nursery’s Wetlands Boardwalk provides an opportunity for visitors to view a rehabilitated wetland area and the birds and animals that live in this threatened habitat.
The public may purchase plants at the nursery, which is open seven days a week. Access to the nursery is via the Lake Panic turnoff on the Skukuza/Paul Kruger Gate road.
During weekends and public holidays, the nursery is run by the Lowveld Honorary Rangers and is open from 08h00 to 16h00 and closed for lunch from 12h00 to 13h00. From Monday to Friday it’s open from 07h00 to 16h00.
Kruger Lowveld offers a large variety of accommodation, places to go and things to do. Find it all here...
