They have done so many upgrades to this venue. All the upgrades are great. The park was clean and affordable. The seal and snake show was great. Well done to management for turning this park around.

If you like visiting zoos, then this one should definitely be on your list. Entered with less than an hour until closing time and pretty much ran through the place. I will definitely return in the future!

Lots of animals. R100 entrance per adult. Parking an issue. Go early or later. Loved the seal and snake show at 15:00. Still do not like that most areas gives you a cage feeling instead of a habitat. Worth a visit and the money.

This is a very average zoo/animal park. For the price you pay, i would suggest going to Pretoria Zoo rather or even the Jhb Zoo. The animals have been the same for the past 6 years and there have been no visible up-grades. I would...More

It was great seeing the different animals and learning a lot about snakes. Spending time at the park was great since we also took a boat cruise.
