Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
Admire white lions, black rhinos, and more than 300 other animal species at Johannesburg Zoo, open in 1904. Established as a humble farm with only a few animals, the zoo expanded into a wildly popular attraction offering camping trips, night safaris, and educational programs--the park's main claim to fame may be a successful program for breeding rare Siberian tigers and white lions. On your tour of the zoo, you can encounter gorillas, crocodiles, elephants, brown bears, and countless other species.

  • 4 stars because toilets were dirty. Otherwise it's mostly clean and pleasant, not too expensive. Enough places to sit, picnic, eat and relax. Great fun for adults and kids even on a rainy day. Great place for long walks. The animals look taken care of except for their water that looks dirty. Otherwise their enclosures are big and clean. There are rides, a restaurant, an aquarium, and wonderful places to take pictures. Would definitely go again.
  • Its now Johannesburg zoo opened and how much per person?
