Johannesburg Zoo Half-Day Guided Tour
Reviewed 14 March 2017

One can appreciate the wide variety of animals and enclosure space to an extent, however, the zoo requires more information about the animals on the sign post situated at the enclosure and some enclosures doesn't have any.
I would also like to highlight that they praise themselves on maintaining a high standard of animal welfare, but when ones looks deeper into the simpler things, one can see slight neglect... example the pygmy hippo enclosure- Minimal water .. Most of the animal enclosures that required water were either minimal or extremely dirty and some of the enclosures were not cleaned.
They should also re-look at updating the information on the site and not only the fees section.

I was here scoping this out for when I bring my family here one day in the future. A really good exhibition of African animals. It's also a nice, spacious and family friendly venue for picnics or birthday parties. However, if your kids are of the right age and you have the time I would rather recommend heading out to Pilanesberg on a day safari.

Not the best in terms of animals but it was a nice place to spend time walking in when we didn't know the city or know what parks would be good. Enjoyable couple of hours.

My friends and family were on the lookout to do something different - not the usual dinner, movies or games and wanted to make it a family friendlt activity.


With a little research we discovered The Joburg Zoo did night tours!

Sunset tour (4pm - 6:30pm)Moonlight tour (5:15pm - 8pm)Night tour (6:15pm - 9pm)

We were a group of almost 30 - and everyone one had a wonderful time on our guided moonlight tour.

The tour allows picnic baskets and includes a bonfire, hot chocolate and marshmallows - a fun finish to a great tour.
