One can take a bus to the Botanical gardens so it takes about 30 mins from the centre . I have tendency to visit botanical gardens everywhere I go - and you see and learn so much. Initially you'll have to walk about 1.5-2 km before you reach civilisation , occasional car will pass you by. You'll get the map... More

The place is nice if you want to do a picknick or something, but if you're looking for a botanical garden with some variety of plants it is not the best place. Nice for a walk though.

First of all I must admit I know little about botany and probably didn't appreciated the delights this botanic gardens offered. The botanic gardens is located about 18km from the city centre, and it is a relatively straightforward bus ride to get within the vicinity of the entrance - I had to walk a bit over a kilometre from my...

Not what you expect in a Botanic Garden. Designed for motor car. Large area of bush with paths through it. No map and limited signage. Cafe in middle is nice. Near to it are recent initatives to design examples of biomes around ponds. Can get there by bus but is a long way from city centre. Trees are labelled but... More

I got married and went there to take some pictures. It was simply the best thing to do. Many couples go there and I realized that I shouldn't be different.

Usually the botanical gardens that I had visited before was interesting and there was many different plants and flowers but not this one in Brasilia. I think I have seen more flowers or interesting plants outside of this garden in Brasilia instead.

Take your time and look at all the detail of the different plants growing here would be my advise. There's more here than meets the eye at first glance. If you love plants and how they grow you'll be amazed of all the different spices growing here. My only regret was the lack of time I had to take it... More

The area close to the café is very good and relaxing. Perfect for breakfast. Covered by the top of the trees, it offers really good environment for parties. The park itself as a botanic ride is not that good, trees labeled here and there without a formal path.

Come here for a morning walk, a little instruction on the nature surrounding Brasilia, and also stop for a wonderful picnic breakfast.
