I quickly get bored of looking at different primates, so I grew tired of that fairly quick. The zoo was very well maintained though. Very neat. The highlight was definitely the cub interaction though. There are fairly young tiger cubs, probably under a year old, as well as older tiger (2) and lion (1) cubs that are a bit bigger.... More

Staying in South Africa and even in the same location as this attraction, you would say that I've seen pretty much everything they have to offer, righ? WRONG!! This is really a gorgeous place to visit. From staff up to animals, it's special. Where on earth do interact with white lions and tigers? Or how many people knew that you... More

We drove out to Mystic Monkeys and Feathers from Johannesburg and it was a lovely little road trip. The Zoo is clean and well looked after. The staff were friendly. We really enjoyed seeing all the animals and interacting with the cubs. Would definitely visit again in the future!

This is a little private zoo, quite out of the way. The zoo is very well maintained. You are not able to leisurely walk around as in most zoos. There was a guide escorting us around the zoo, and through various gates. It was interesting, although I dont think we will visit again.

The enclosures are so small that the animals can barely do more than stretch their legs and walk around in a circle. There are no larger enclosures to be shared around and the poor animals are left there to just stare through the fences. If I hadn't seen it for myself I wouldn't believe that places like this are allowed... More

Had such a great time here which was largely because I was able to play with two tiger cubs. For an extra 100 rand I was able to go into a small enclosure and play with two tiger cubs for a long period of time and get plenty of photos. I have always wanted to interact with tigers so this... More

The set up is like a small zoo. Cages full of monkeys and the lions and chimps are on the outside in large encaged areas. The monkeys are very intertaining..we enjoyed interacting with them. Every ones personality is different. Lovely bathrooms, tuk shop available. Definitely worth a visit at R100
