New arrivals at the Joburg Zoo
Zoo voted Joburg's No. 1 family outing
Tuesday, 11 November 2014
JOHANNESBURG Zoo has got the big thumbs-up from The Star readers, being voted No. 1 in the Best Family Outing category in the newspaper's annual Your Choice competition.
Run over a period of six weeks, the competition gave readers the opportunity to cast their votes in two ballots for their favourite services and businesses across a wide range of categories.
In Johannesburg, the Zoo took the Family Outing honours, with especially strong scores for customer service, customer needs and wants satisfaction, and public exposure resulting in a vote of confidence from customers and stakeholders within the business.
Covering 55 hectares across the road from Zoo Lake in the leafy suburb of Parkview, Joburg Zoo houses over 320 species totalling around 2 000 animals.
The facility is open to the public 364 days a year, including the Christmas, New Years and Easter holidays, and hosts a busy schedule of day and night tours, school holiday programmes and other regular events for the public.
