“The Zoo”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

It is a bit small but despite this was really pleasurable to see the number of animals all in good health and some very naughty (especially the monkeys and gorrillas). Lovely picnic areas and rides for the entire family.

“Jhb Zoo poorly maintained”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The zoo was poorly maintained with a lot of empty cages without any explanation. Not sure if it due to a lack of funds or just the general trend in South Africa where nothing is looked after anymore.

The zoo is well maintained and the animals look in good health. its a great place to go for a days walk around and to see many interesting animals and birds. The layout is good and you don't end up too tired.

“Paradise in the city”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Great outdoor experience not far from home. Scenic view, lots to see and easily accessible. It is a wonderful place to escape the busy city life and the animals are a pleasure to see. Excellent place to take photographs, take a run or just walk around.

“Several visits”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We used to go regularly with extended family members and hope to do so again while we're back in the area. So much to do and see, and so many extras to get involved with. A credit to the country.
