It's a park, same ol'. However, the attached zoo is pretty sad. Monkeys in tiny cages, birds too, unable to fly around. I'd rather not support it myself, even if it is only R10 or so

From the monkeys grabbing my camera when trying to take photos of them, to the bizarre flightless sentinel birds, and the funny meerkats I really enjoyed my visit here, I did not have as much time to spend here as I would have liked! Entry was 10rand which is very cheap, even the gardens on the way in with the... More

the animal section, a truly amazing place to take a toddler, loved the picnic space and swings, the walk around the park itself is great for adults, kids and the aged. The Coffee shop also adds an edge to the venue.

This is a beautiful park with a childrens amusement area as well as well manicured rolling lawns and not forgetting a zoo and a resturant. Its a great place to take a picnic basket or to go to read a good book or perhaps the Sunday Paper while the Kids tire themselves out in the Free Amusement Park.

For R30 this has to be a bargain : - there are plenty of exotic birds (although most in cages); indigenous birds (in the ponds and scrub); crocodiles (thank heavens they are in cages); peacocks and ducks (out of their cages); marmosets (in trees inside their cages) and a pig, not to mention other animals that excite children. This is... More

The venue offers an attractive zoo with some intersting creatures. The gardens are best when the flowers are in bloom and the restaurant makes a pleasant stop for a drink.

So close to the city bustle is this wonderful piece of greenery with a myriad of different shrub species, plants and towering trees. The animal park is a delight for all. Visit to Blue Zoo restaurant is a must either for breakfast or lunch.
