Activity Information

Oahu Multi-Garden Botanical & Nature Walk

Learn about Hawaii's endemic Hawaiian plant species on the grounds of two botanical gardens. Your professional naturalist guide will describe the unique tropical plants such as cacao, pepper, cinnamon, allspice trees and variety of palms and succulents. See the famous orchid collections Hawaii widely exports, as well as a "Bo Tree," grown from a cutting of the original tree planted in India 800 years ago by the first Dali Lama.

You will gaze at the amazing collection of rainforest and tropical plants and relax by hidden waterfalls on this professionally guided and narrated tour. Start the day at the famous Foster's Botanical Garden where you will learn about Hawaii's endemic, native species in addition to the many foreign plants that Dr. William Hillebrand introduced in Hawaii in the mid-1800's. Later visit endangered dry-land plants inside a crater site. Gasp at African plants, cacti and many other palms and succulents suitable to flourish in this desert-like landscape. An excellent place to take a memorable photo!

A short walk takes us into a misty natural rainforest including a waterfall. At the falls you will view ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs near the bank of the stream, learn about the rainforest plants in the park, and look for the vibrant yellow Oahu Amakihi, a rare and endangered Hawaiian honeycreeper bird species.

The tour requires walking but is accessible for all skill levels and is a great way to experience Oahu's world famous botanical gardens, historical sites and scenic waterfalls all in one day. To make your trip a special, one-of-a-kind experience, we provide our guests with a non-host lunch stop at one of the locations. We also offer an exclusive private tour for small groups.
