Johannesburg Zoo

  Jan Smuts Ave, Saxonwold ,   Rosebank & The Parks          +27 11 646 2000     16 Feb 2021

Walk on the wild side on close to 54 hectares of protected land to view nearly 2000 animals. The Johannesburg Zoo, founded in 1904, in the pretty suburb of Saxonwold offers plenty of picnic spots and the opportunity to see an impressive collection of creatures including the safari Big 5, white lions and a gorilla. There are zoo tours, zoo trots (5km walks) and regular family events such as nocturnal visits and even zoo snoozes. If distance is an issue for the little ones, rent a buggy to see the flamingoes, elephants, reptile house, lion enclosure, 'crocodile country' and farmyard.

The Johannesburg Zoo is one of the stops on the open-top City Sightseeing bus.
