Hg2 : The Hedonist

Jo’burg Zoo

The Jo’burg Zoo, opened in 1904, is based around four basic principles – education, conservation, recreation and research. Beautifully designed and well maintained, the exhibits and enclosures work to bring visitors closer to many of the animals that cover our world. The animals are definitely not restricted to those found on the African continent and contain: big cats, bears, monkeys, snakes and all manner of smaller creatures. For a real treat, book an evening tour of the zoo. Guests are driven around by one of the vets in a tractor with carriages behind it, with the idea being visitors will see a different side of the animals, as well as some of the more shy ones, all accompanied by expert commentary.
