Durban Botanical Gardens - Review
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.

Durban Botanical Gardens, Durban Reviews
So often overlooked and perhaps forgotten by locals. In am ever increasingly challenging environment of change the Durban municipality has managed to maintain this little haven in the centre of a busy metropolis. Well done. Security is not an issue as there are security officers patrolling the grounds to give one peace of mind. Lovely to see so many birds in amongst the well maintained gardens with beautiful flower beds. Pack a picnic and go laze on the lawns in this little piece of paradise!
Had a lovely mothers day brunch here, it’s beautiful and well taken care of. No ball playing and no tents, the number of chairs allowed are also limited if having a free event. We got to set up and bring our food and had a great time wondering the gardens
Free entrance into a beautiful park. It has a couple of small restaurants to eat at or nice grassy areas to picnic on. A lake to feed the geese/ducks. The family had a great day
The guided tour we used was amazing and oozed with historical knowledge. Unique trees were hundreds of years old. Trees from other countries like China and India were hundreds of years old.Our Guide was tops with imparting knowledge. I would most deffinitely recommend this guided tour to anyone. We live in Durban and left oozing with knowledge on Botanical Gardens.
The oldest and living botanical gardens in south Africa really feeds the soul of its beautiful wonders. From the palm walks to the cycads showing off its orange seeds. It's free entrance and supplies a small cafe. Really worth a visit!
