Durban Botanic Gardens reviews
After some adrenalin in the watertz with sharks some cooling down inbetween the lovely serene nature and its other fun things in 1 with nature. Got to love it got to try it. #😁 more »
Vishnu, our guide, had so much passion for his work. It was all very informative and the gardens are beautifully maintained. Worth the trip more »
Beautiful well kept gardens with lovely bird life. There are so many Egyptian geese there this time of year. There are many gorgeous spots to have a picnic and benches all around. I like going there. There is a nice tea room that sells sandwiches and scones. Not enough parking though.
Visited the Durban botanical gardens for the Christmas trail of lights show 2018. A really fun event. Excellent for kids. A beautiful trial of lights and fairytale themes displays. Loads of food Stalls and good entertainment from the band. A really lovely place for family pictures.
