Great park but badly kept with a lot of litter, no clear signs and a sense of insecurity. Surely the city can do better and make the park a safe and clean space for residents and visitors to look forward to?

We went to Mitchell Park on a Wednesday morning and a whole walk through the entire park took us about two hours. Now, I am sorry to say this but the lady manning the ticket booth almost scared me. At some point we needed some information but heck no were we going to ask her. We resorted to waylaying locals... More

Your portions are small and the food has no finesse. I make a better sandwich at home. Will not eat here again.

Restaurant is ok. Service is slow. Food is not much to talk about. To me just too many waiters around for a medium size restaurant. But it will do. Not many animals around. And NOT wheelchair friendly at all. I was there when i was a kid now that was a good place. But i think times have changed.

This is a nice garden with a restaurant and a small zoo for kids. try to avoid Sundays as it is very crowded. the food at the Blue Zoo restaurant is very reasonable with a pianist playing and special activities for the kids.

The food is good, but not great at the Blue Zoo Cafe. However, when in Durban, you have to at least have some tea and scones there, or maybe a late and lazy breakfast: out in the open, plenty of place for the kids to run around, beautiful flora, and for a few Rands, you can go in and explore...
