Every year the Johannesburg Zoo visitor numbers increased to such an extent that parking became an urgency to alleviate the impact on residents as well as to ensure safety for zoo visitors. The Johannesburg Zoo’s R45 million parking building is expected to provide easier access for visitors coming by car to the zoo.

The Zoo three storey parkade was designed to accommodate 710 cars and 15 buses. Special needs, parents with prams and wheelchair parking is available on the ground floor.

City of Joburg supplied the funding for the parkade in 2014 to the value of R45 million. The project started in 2014 and completed in 2017.

Visitors will be relieved from illegal car guards. Spill over parking on very busy days will still be able to utilise the Distong Museum of Military history parking as well as other parking areas on Erlswold Way and Jan Smuts.

The intention is to grow visitor numbers to 800 000 per annum.

Visitors can use the new parking starting from Wednesday 26 July 2017 till Monday 1 August 2017. The parkade will be closed on 2 August 2017 for the official launch but will be opened again at 14:00 for FREE parking.

Parking fees:
Buses R25
Cars R15
