Jardim Botânico de São Paulo

A few months back we visited the Sao Paulo Botanical Gardens and I’ve been meaning to post some of the photos. The gardens are an incredible way to spend the day with so many areas providing a variety of experiences.

On the Trilha de Terra Batida, you almost feel as though you are in the middle of the Amazon.

The restaurant also offers a pretty great lunch buffet.

We were also well warned about what might fall from the trees, unlike our trip to the Botanical Gardens in Rio de Janeiro (see Sloth Surprise).

With green houses, a science center, a sculpture gardens and plenty of open space for kids to run, it makes for a great family day as well.

For more photos of the Jardim Botânico in Sao Paulo, go to my Gallery.

    Looks like a really wonderful place!

    Is there a lot of wildlife there? It would be cool for all the critters to have a place to live in the midst of all the concrete😉

    Alex, B.A.B,

    The Jardim Botanico is right next door to the Sao Paulo Zoo, and also the “Simba Safari” which is a park you drive thru and stay inside your car and the monkeys jump all over your car and you can give them peanuts thru small cracks in the window, you can also drive thru Lions, Camels and other wildlife, it’s a lot of fun.
    Gil and I used to head to the Jardim Botanico when we were stressed out with the city and spend a couple of hours walking around the trails and chatting to help de-compress from all the stress, it was awesome. I miss the park very much and our long walks around the beautiful trails. 🙂
