Durban Botanic Gardens

Picnic spot at Durban Botanic Gardens
Durban Botanic Gardens Picnic Area

This is a magnificent garden to have a picnic in. It is well kept and well looked after. It is the oldest surviving botanic gardens in Africa! There are plenty of shady spots, and little hideaway area’s for that little bit of privacy! The gardens are spacious and lusciously green, so it doesn’t feel overcrowded and packed to capacity- even on a sunny Durban Saturday! There are restrictions (no bikes, ball games, gazebos, umbrellas etc.) as it is not a park, but instead a garden to sit back, relax and learn about our great outdoors! The gardens have opening and closing times depending on the season- check the website for details.

Luscious, leisurely and a lovely space to forget the world and breathe your loved ones in!!

Entrance fees: This is a municipal gardens so there is no entrance fee.
