The Fauna & Flora Garden

Show Gardens

The garden maps the journey of an ecotourist on a gorilla trek, tracing a rough track through a succession of lush and changing landscapes on either side of the Protected Forest Area boundary wall.

Along the way is a medicinal garden shaded by eucalyptus and banana trees, a typical tourist kiosk selling local crafts, a true-to-life gorilla nest set among bamboo and other typical gorilla food plants, as well as a waterfall and viewing rock surrounded by plants commonly found at high altitude.

The garden aims to demonstrate the critical importance of protecting nature and how this can be best achieved by putting people and collaboration at the heart of conservation efforts. With sustainability a guiding theme throughout the garden, after the show it will be relocated to the world-famous Biomes of The Eden Project in Cornwall, which will also be supplying the majority of the garden's plants.
