“The Johannesburg Zoo strives to be accessible to all citizens by keeping its tariffs low. We are the cheapest in our industry and hence the increase is on par with the inflation rate. The tariff charged was determined by CPI directions issued by the National Treasury and it is in line with tariff legislation” said Letta Madlala, Brand and Communications Manager at Johannesburg City Parks & Zoo.

 

The Zoo adds great value to the community by providing a safe family-orientated facility where people can be close to nature in the heart of the city. It has grown to become one of the best zoos in the world. Our Zoo has animals from around the world. Covering 54 hectares, Johannesburg Zoo has a large collection of 1908 animals and 365 species. The collection comprises 7 classes of animal: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and arachnids. 26 endangered species are housed at the Zoo. We are in a unique situation being the only zoo in Africa to house polar bears and one of two in South Africa to house a gorilla. We have 4 of the South Africa’s big five and have been able to send white lion cubs to many zoos across the world.
