A long-standing place in Johannesburg, South Africa, is Johannesburg Zoo, which was established in 1904. The zoo covers 140 acres of land which is the home of around 2000 animals of around 230 species. The zoo has traditionally been owned and operated by the Johannesburg City Council but it is now mostly looked after by a non-profit organisation. The zoo’s animals are mainly from African areas. Johannesburg Zoo runs a variety of breeding programmes aimed at boosting the numbers of certain animal species. The zoo is a day out for all of the family to enjoy.
If travelling to the zoo by car, the zoo has a car park that is open for visitor use. The RB5 bus stops a short walk away from the zoo.
Opening Times and Admission
The zoo is open daily, 8.30am-5.30pm. Admission to the zoo is set at 90ZAR for adults, 60ZAR for students and 55 ZAR for children and seniors.
