Trip Planner: Africa / South Africa / Gauteng / Greater Johannesburg / Johannesburg / Johannesburg Zoo
Admire white lions, black rhinos, and more than 300 other animal species at Johannesburg Zoo, open in 1904. Established as a humble farm with only a few animals, the zoo expanded into a wildly popular attraction offering camping trips, night safaris, and educational programs--the park's main claim to fame may be a successful program for breeding rare Siberian tigers and white lions. On your tour of the zoo, you can encounter gorillas, crocodiles, elephants, brown bears, and countless other species.

There are rides, a restaurant, an aquarium, and wonderful places to take pictures. Would definitely go again.
