On this tour visitors get to spend an hour with horticulturist and botanist Ernst van Jaarsveld, learning more about his special collection, whether it be cycads, historical trees or succulents. These plants take up special space in the garden – beacons of horticultural significance and interest.
He will share his unique interpretation of the garden and what he finds interesting and noteworthy during this time of year.
As an author of many books on indigenous gardening, waterwise plants and succulent species, Ernst is an expert on these subjects.
When Ernst is not tending Babylonstoren’s indigenous garden, you’ll find him doing research, documenting his botanical findings, somewhere on a rubber duck or hiking expedition in search of interesting and rare plant species to add to our collection.
He may be a master in his field, but he does not keep his knowledge to himself – his wisdom is generously shared with garden visitors and colleagues alike, and all agree that his passion is contagious.

Seasonal fresh juice from our juicery is served upon arrival.

Free entry to the Babylonstoren garden if you booked for the Special Collections Tour. Please have the proof of your booking close at hand and show it at the ticket office upon entry.
