Makaranga Botanical Garden

Makaranga Botanical Gardens
  • Be prepared to be enchanted and ready yourself to experience a whole new world of magic delivered with impeccability. In the rolling hills of KwaZulu Natal, 15 minutes from the bustling city of Durban you will find the lush green village of Kloof, and at its heart, Makaranga Botanical Garden

    No other place in Durban can boast a more wonderful setting for The Galileo Open Air Cinema: 30 Acres of indigenous and exotic botanical gardens, 18 ponds, meandering streams and a waterfall await your discovery and offer you their joy and healing. 

    The Galileo screens weekly movies on Wednesday evenings during the months of August and September. Plenty of secure parking and toilets are available. Should a show be rained out on a Wednesday, the event will be moved to the next day, Thursday, so please be prepared to attend both days in case of bad weather as no refunds will be granted in this case.
