Durban Botanic Gardens

Durban Botanic Gardens

Durban's Botanic Gardens are renowned for having the finest collection of plantlife anywhere in Africa. Established in 1851, the gardens, on Sydenham Hill Road west of the Greyville Race Track, are the city's oldest natural attraction, providing a relaxing spot to stroll among huge indigenous and exotic trees, and the stunning orchid house display. The gardens are also abuzz with birdlife and boast a lovely tea garden. Go for a picnic under the trees or by the pond, but leave the sports equipment behind as frisbee and ball games are not allowed. The gardens are a popular spot for wedding photos on Saturdays, and once a month they host a Sunday afternoon concert that attracts thousands of Durbanites. The gardens are in a nice area of Durban to walk in, or there are several bus routes that go past. There's no entrance fee, but if you drive you are expected to tip the car guard two to five rand.
