Hackland Aloe Garden is situated on a cane farm in Bishopstowe, Pietermaritzburg, overlooking Ashburton towards Table Mountain.

Hackland Aloe Garden was established in 2012 and consists of beautiful indigenous aloes, as well as some Hybrid Sunbird Aloe varieties.

There are also lots of interesting things to see in the garden. One being an old original Voortrekker wagon!

This is truly a paradise for artists and photographers who would like to capture the stunning plants and surroundings.
