Johannesburg Zoo Half-Day Guided Tour
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Animals appear to be well cared for and grounds well maintained and planted. They are actively involved in various conservation and preservation projects so animal welfare is high priority (often something some zoos have lower down on their list of priorities). Lots of walking so will work up an appetite for the cafe which offers an excellent selection of sandwiches and wraps etc. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

A firm favourite for anyone with kids, great opportunity to learn about animals. Maintenance of some sections not great, but overall a great day outing. Allow a full day to take in all the sights and enjoy yourself without rushing. Lots to see and do, fun for the whole family.

The grounds are lovely and it is a well maintained zoo with interestingly designed enclosures. There isn't a great restaurant but it's nice to have a picnic.

This is the biggest zoo I've ever been to; I loved how easy "access" the enclosures were; it was easy to see the animals, and take great photos, while they still had plenty of space to themselves. I must've spent an hour here, and still missed a lot!

Johannesburg zoo is the best zoo experience I've ever had. They even have Scimitar Oryx, which are extinct in the wild!
