Featuring park-like surrounds, the Johannesburg Zoo offers a glimpse at over 3,000 animal species. Night-time tours are also offered, giving a fascinating show of the nocturnal behavior of many residents. 'Behind-the-scenes' tours offer a chance to witness first-hand, the goings-on in a typical zoo such as the feeding and cleaning routines the public seldom see. A restaurant/tea garden is open during all normal visiting hours. An approximate time of four hours is required in order to view all the exhibits.
My brother lives in South Africa, so on a recent visit with my son, we took a trip to the Zoo.
It's ok, not the best or worst Zoo I have ever been to. It actually reminded me of London Zoo. Very big and spacious but clearly getting old.
unfortunately, it poured down on the day we went which did damper our spirits a little. If you are short of things to do then jo'burg zoo is worth a visit.
