The Durban Botanic Gardens Trail of Lights is back and it’s brighter than ever. With world class lighting displays, an illuminated trail winds its way through Africa’s oldest surviving botanic garden, providing a magical experience.

The trail is open until January 3, but is closed on Christmas Day. It is an ideal, safe and family friendly holiday adventure for children and adults alike. There is also a food garden.
