Pretoria Zoo is much better. Johannesburg zoo is somewhat sterile, I wasn't able to find a personal connection with the idea and the setup.

This is an excursion NOT to be missed if you're travelling to Johannesburg with a little person! We had an awesome day out, and can't wait to take him back again, when next we're up there.

the changeable weather in johannesburg makes the photograph of the lions in the snow unforgettable. the poolar bear in its chilly pool is also an impressive beast. well maintained, rersearch involved - great zoo

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.
