What is the parking like at the zoo. I have been reading horror stories about the car "gaurds" outside?
Parking is currently under construction. Best to park in the temporary additional parking created which is near the South African Military History Museum (north-east corner of the zoo). I have had no issues parking in that area.
Best thing is to park inside the zoo. Many will try to convince to leave the car outside.
Normally there is parking at the zoo. When we were there we parked outside. We acknowledged the parking attendents and just made sure nothing visible in the car for any eyes to see and we had no problems on return. Hopefully all reparations are finished now that there is ample parking available.
