“Fun experience after so many months”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

sometimes the carelessness of the visitors at throwing things at the animals while their parents watched was disturbing. No visibility of staff in terms of protecting the animals in their cages - glass cages

“A poor show”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

. A lot of the animal cages were empty and staff are not friendly. Rather do Pretoria zoo. Food stalls are below average and service poor.

“Zoo Visit”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

I had no idea that this zoo was so huge. I was truly amazed and enjoyed the experience. It was a tiring day though as it was an extremely long walk, but there is plenty of shade and places to rest.

“''fun day''”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I went there with my class(in your mind you probly think im a lilltle girl in primary school with a laptop but this trip was for serous learning purposes).

It was very fun to see the different types of animals in the habitas,the cages where kept clean and there was no funny smells(people like me who hate funny smelly and the site of animal drops will feel safe).

The green play area where amazing and where a fun place for us to hang out in.

but...... the highlight of the whole trip and something I think everyone would like to see is a..............

POLAR BEAR IN THE ZOO

they are so so cute and look like big teddy bears.
