Durban Botanical Gardens


The Durban Botanic Gardens is Africa’s Oldest surviving Botanic Garden in Africa and such we encourage that kids parties that occur in the garden be nature friendly.
Picnic set ups are preferred (no cooking I am afraid), Maximum of 30 visitors, no structures to be set up in the garden – which means no gazebo’s, no jumping castles. We have beautiful trees that will gladly provide you with some natural shelter

Tea garden


The tea garden is known far and wide for its delicious treats. It is manned by volunteers, and all profits are donated to the Anti-Tuberculosis Association. This is a restful oasis, where family and friends can rejuvenate and soak up the beauty that surrounds them, while sipping a cuppa! Be sure to try out their famous “crumpets and scones with the WORKS”.

Birds in the Gardens


The Durban Botanic Gardens is one of the few 'green' areas in the City where an extensive number of local birds are to be found, not in great numbers, but a great variety of species. Water birds can be seen around the lake area. Regular bird counts are held at the Gardens.
