Johannesburg Zoo Reviews
More info about Johannesburg Zoo
Spread over 54ha of prime land, the Johannesburg Zoological Gardens houses over 2000 animals in landscaped enclosures designed to create natural barriers rather than bars, giving the visitors the impression of being in a game park.
The Johannesburg Zoo is one of the oldest, established over 100 years ago on park land set aside for animals, many of which were donated by Sit Percy Fitzpatrick, author of Jock of the Bushveld. Since its founding, the zoo has proved to be popular with the public and it’s a regular weekend family outing and party venue for Johannesburg residents.
Children love the farm animals section where pigs, cows, chickens, sheep, ducks and other favourites are located. The discovery centre has 30 animal skins for children to touch while lively demonstrations are offered to school groups to learn more of the animals on show.
The zoo’s administration has a few super creative offerings from which the public can choose... Show more
About Health Resorts
For a lavish and exotic getaway, a Health resort should be first choice. For the ultimate relaxing experience, we recommend staying at a Health Resort. They offer all basic amenities as well as spa treatment services such as massages, detox treatments, beauty treatments and jacuzzis. Best chosen for guests who have the time and would like to make it an integral part of their stay, or simply spoil themselves. They are generally applicable to a higher budget but there are some resorts which offer more value for your money.
