The Johannesburg Zoo is a place that kids will simply love! A great precursor to a safari, the Jo'burg zoo provides excellent facilities and showcases over 2000 animals. Disabled people and children are provided special viewing facilities with the zoo being one of the most child friendly areas of the city. The animals are arranged in zones depending on the area they belong to, such as the Spice Route with animals from Asia and the Heart of Africa with central African species.
