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!

  • A beautiful and peaceful typical botanic garden walk, but atypical in that it is really old and has many historic references. A pleasant outdoor tea room run by volunteers. The lake is known for the concert at the lake each year. An area for sight impaired people is available. Touch and scent based. Conference facilities are also available.

  • Well maintained beautiful gardens. Nice for a picnic or a relaxing stroll. Lots of birds at the small lake. More control over people playing music would be nice. Overall worth a visit.

  • What a beautiful place to visit, the ducks are so tame, they will come eat out of your hand. And visit the most beautiful, orchids hot house. Indeed very beautiful. Lots of benches to sit and relax, even have a picnic basket so you can enjoy the peace and quiet. With and a big duck pond.

  • The Botanical Gardens is a wonderful oasis in the city of Durban. The orchid house is a special place to reflect and enjoy . Good to see that the Tea Garden has had an uplift. All looking squeaky clean now. The scones, crumpets and toasted sandwiches are very good. The speciality of the house is a 'crumpet with the works' . This is a Durbanite code for 2 large crumpets with syrup and cream. It is always good and works well as a late breakfast
