Salem Biblical Gardens
Salem Biblical Garden was established in 2011, by Jack and Annalee Carstens, on a farm on the slopes of the Paarl mountain in the Windmeul valley, Noord Agter Paarl. The natural fynbos, 300 hundred year old wild olive trees and granite rocks closely resemble parts of Israel. A path has been cut along the mountain to form this beautiful natural art garden, containing 50 different fynbos varieties. The public are invited to came and “Journey through the Bible”. The Biblical Art exhibits start with depictions from the book of Genesis and ends with the expected return of Messiah at the End of the Age. The garden also boasts the only open air archaeology museum in South Africa.
Dense trees, fynbos varieties, ideal for bird watching. Come and rest your soul in this wonderful tranquil garden, hidden away from the busy world around it.
Kiosk is available over weekends. Picnic and braai facilities are available under the wild olive trees, with kids play area.
