Although some of the animals are looking a little tired and some of the enclosures are sadly just sitting empty, we thoroughly enjoyed our day here. We had visited the Pretoria zoo a week earlier and definitely found Joburg a better experience. The multi-parking structure makes parking a doddle and the only thing thing we were really disappointed by was the entrance. There were only a couple of people ahead of us in the queue but it took half an hour before we could get in. However, the maps given to us were very helpful, the restaurant we ate breakfast at was very good and accepted cards for payment. There is a great variety of animals (although it is a shame some of the bigger breeds seemed to be alone in their cages and looked a little desperate). It is also a shame the old polar bear enclosure has not been converted to something useful. Thank you for a great (and affordable) day out.

Great place for a family day, with so much to do you can literally spend the whole day there, the animals of the amazon were a highlight for the adults

A good and big zoo.
Animals are in quite large areas.
Almost every type of animal can be seen.
There are fast food offers and a small park for the kids.
Recommended for a nice day with family.

Amazing experience !! One of the best Johannesburg has to offer. This is a fantastic way to spend the day with lots to see and do. Easy to get around if you hire a golf cart so less walking as it get can tiring.

We truly enjoyed this very large zoo. It is centrally located in Johannesburg and of course they have refreshments so you can spend the day there or at least half the day. It is well laid out and you won’t miss anything from the different birds to the silverback gorillas. Great experience has a large variety of animals to include the vegetation as well. If you do not have time for a safari go here for sure
