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.

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.

We went to Mitchell Park on a Wednesday morning and a whole walk through the entire park took us about two hours. Now, I am sorry to say this but the lady manning the ticket booth almost scared me. At some point we needed some information but heck no were we going to ask her. We resorted to waylaying locals... More

Your portions are small and the food has no finesse. I make a better sandwich at home. Will not eat here again.
