World Botanical Gardens

Heliconia_hiloThe World Botanical Gardens, located in between Umauma and Hakalau, along Mamalahoa Highway, is a stunningly attractive addition to the Botanical World Adventures Company. This set of commercial botanical gardens is lined with paved and unpaved trails throughout, making it easy and fun to explore all the surrounding tropical flora. Here there are volcanoes, waterfalls, streams, rainforests, and access to the ocean all in one spot, what more could you ask for? Amid the slopes of Mauna Kea volcano your group will truly enjoy this wonder of nature, a "true Hawaiian eco-adventure" that includes the second largest herbaceous maze in the world, outstanding zip lining opportunities above the rainforest and gardens, and even adventurous segway tours!

While here your group can choose to do several different things. You may hike the many various trails along Hana Pueo Stream and waterfalls, admire and photograph the hundreds of wild orchids along the 80-meter long orchid wall in the Rainbow Walk, or learn all about the exotic food plant options here such as guava, mango, papaya, pineapple, banana, and coffee fruit. Use any of the wide, paved walkways shaded by trees draped with the stems and roots of native vines along the Rainforest Trail or head over to the gorgeous viewing platforms of Kamaee Falls. Whatever you decide to do here with your group you are going to end up seeing thousands of exotic plants from around the world alongside native vines and plants, as well as get to see the panula-style cattle ranch adjoining the gardens, volcanoes, and ocean.
