Tuin van Eden is situated on a farm between the slopes of Suikerbosrand River Valley, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

Located 15km from Heidelberg and approximately 70km from Johannesburg.

Tuin van Eden offers a diverse habitat and grasslands. The farm is home to a unique butterfly specie, birds, small mammals and variety of indigenous trees and plants. 

We will be doing a +- 12km circular route from the view site down to the river, back up the mountains, past caves, returning up the mountain to the parking area.

Looking forward to sharing this beautiful spot with everybody!
