Was interesting to see all animals on display, they looked happy and well taken care of. The smaller kids loved the Lions

We try not to miss out on an annual visit to the Johannesburg Zoo - we arrive as early as possible prepared for an entire day at the zoo. It is always good to see improvements in the animals' living conditions underway and each year there is something to note. We pack a picnic lunch and enjoy being able to picnic on the lovely lawns as much as we enjoy seeing all the animals. We make sure we explore every nook and cranny. The entrance fee is reasonable if you make a whole day out of the visit.

It's fun and enjoyable going to the joburg zoo! There lots of different animals to see! There's a wide variety of animals too! Some of the enclosures are a bit old and could be updated for the comfort of animals in them.

Unfortunately in Joburg it is the only place to take kids to see a lot of animals at the same time. The animals all look so old and tired??? I take my granddaughter of 3 there as she loves animals but it is such a dowdy area. I am sure so much more can be done to make it more attractive. Granted it is very dry this time of year but still it looks like a desert and not a zoo!!! Most of the ice cream stops were closed to, they should be spread out more!
