These beautiful and precious gardens were brought into being by its curators, who introduced their special botanical interests over a century and a half. Rare cycads, ferns, thousands of orchids, bromeliads, trees and palms all have their dedicated sections. It’s not merely botanists who visit though. Bird-watchers, dog walkers and tea and crumpet enthusiasts alike come to lose themselves in the tranquil pathways of this forest. It’s an excellent retreat from the noise of the city. Wide, manicured lawns and gardens make for excellent picnic spots and aren’t too bad for a few romantic hours either. If you visit during a weekend afternoon, you might be lucky enough to catch a musical performance. For those of you not bringing your own snacks, the tea garden is wonderful.

This is the Durban Garden get away. Amazing public place to relax and forget about the city around you. Entrance is free. There are guided tours available by qualified staffed that are amped about what they do. This is however a paid service but worth it. Saturday’s are great for picnicking and watching all the wedding parties come for their photos!!
Absolutely fantastic garden to visit. Beautiful and clean. Large variety of trees, plants and shrubs. Beautiful orchid garden. Large green areas for picnicking. Large duck pond. Large variety of birds that visit as well. Interesting pathways to follow. Tea garden. Large hall that one can hire for any function. Lots of parking. Three entrances to the park. A must visit👌
Great lush gardens all year round. Neatly maintained displays and pathways. I always enjoy the Orchard house and exploring the top part of the gardens where you get a beautiful view over Durban. The only downfall for me is the tea garden, where you are occasionally met with less than friendly assistance, and the manner in which they deter the monkeys - after all it is a botanical gardens and the monkeys once natural habitat.
This really is one of the best botanical gardens in SA. Clean, well maintained with great signage and educational information. There is a reasonable amount of safe parking available and educational centers that are great for those interested. I would estimate that over 90% of the park is fully accessible via wheelchairs or strollers. In addition this is a completely FREE attraction and definitely worth a visit. There is a small coffee stand at the main center entrance, and a wonderful tea garden run by the Lions Club
Beautiful features. Wide variety of feathered friends. Some can grace the air in sudden flight or others which can glide through the water with just as much finesse. It's a place which fulfills the senses with the sights and sounds with colourful flowers which garland the park from beginning to end.
