#1 of 20 in Parks in Johannesburg
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. Put Johannesburg Zoo into our Johannesburg road trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
