About the National Botanic Garden of Namibia
The National Botanic Garden of Namibia (NBGN)is situated in the heart of the City of Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. The mission of the Garden is to protect and promote the Namibian flora and to function as an educational, research and recreational facility for Namibians and tourists alike.
The estate is 11 hectars big. The larger part of it is unlandscaped and serves as study area for local students and pupils. A number of walking trails lead through the Garden and the most common woody plants are clearly labelled. The desert house, rockery and nursery house a comprehensive collection of Namibian succulents, many of which rare and endangered.
The NBGN is the only botanic garden in the country. It is one of five subsections within the National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) and is administered by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water, and Rural Development.
