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
Luxurious and large, Villas are ideal for those wanting to self-cater with all the comforts and amenities of high-end accommodation. These usually include several bedrooms, with at least the master ensuite. The kitchen and living areas are fully equipped with top-of-the-range facilities; making it easy to whip-up quick holiday meals or go full gourmet should you choose to. The lounge will have a full entertainment system, including Dstv, and wifi can be expected. Due to the general size of the Villas, they are best suited to families, with older children, or small to medium groups of friends.
