Johannesburg Zoo

The Joburg Zoo is one of the most popular local and tourist attractions situated in the leafy northern suburb of Johannesburg. The Zoo covers 81 hectares of land and was founded in 1904, as a piece of land donated to the public for recreational use by the firm of the late Hermann Ekstein.

The Johannesburg Zoo houses over 320 species of animals, totaling about 2000 animals. The Johannesburg Zoo is open to the public 364 days a year, including Christmas, New Years and Easter holidays. The zoo is internationally accredited and highly respected (click here to affiliates page) for its husbandry practices, which includes maintaining a high standard of animal welfare, nutrition and ethical conduct, ensuring the physical and psychological well- being of all its animals.

The Johannesburg Zoo is committed to playing an important role of conservation projects of both indigenous and worldwide endangered animals. The Joburg Zoo is proud to be partnered with other conservation organizations in programmes such as:

Wattled Crane Recovery
Amphibian Conservation
Ground Hornbill breeding and off-site surveys
Vulture Conservation
Chimpanzee conservation with the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI)
Partners with the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) in various projects

As a popular tourist attraction, the Johannesburg Zoo has many fun offers to visitors such as various night and day tours, school holiday programmes, venue hire and regular events for the public. The Johannesburg Zoo is an entity of the City of Joburg and also a section 21 company. In order to maintain and improve the everyday running of the Johannesburg Zoo, we appreciate private and corporate sponsorship and donations. Programmes which assist in our ongoing fundraising efforts include the 'Adopt an Animal' and annual membership.
