For April only, you can get one free child or pensioner pass with any adult pass purchased. That's an amazing year's worth of Joburg Zoo visits absolutely free!

DON'T unlimited year-round visits to the Zoo sound like a good deal? Add free parking and a 5% discount on all meals at Café Fino, and for just R500 a year for an adult pass it's definitely a bargain!

And for April only, you can get one free child or pensioner pass with any adult pass purchased! That's right; between 1 and 30 April you get one free child or pensioner pass with every adult pass you buy.

Zoo membership is annual; the ticket is valid for a year from purchase and costs R500 for adults and (usually) R300 for children (aged three to 12) and pensioners.

With a Zoo membership you get:

  • FREE unlimited entry to Johannesburg Zoo for one full year;
  • FREE car parking at Johannesburg Zoo;
  • Four ferry ride tickets, which you can use over the year;
  • An extra two tickets with your membership card; and
  • A 5 % discount on food and beverages at Café Fino.

There are also VIP tickets; R680 per adult and R480 per child or pensioner.

The VIP ticket lets you attend special events such as the Zoo Trot, Halloween and Wild Lights for free.

Becoming a member at the Zoo is a great idea; unlimited entry to the Zoo for a yearly period means you can picnic for hours on the lush green lawns, visit hundreds of amazing animals (like lions and tigers and bears!) and just take time out with your friends and family.

So, what are you waiting for? Come and be part of the Zoo family and take advantage of this once-off special!

The Zoo is open from Monday to Sunday from 8h30 to 17h50, and from 7h00 to 19h00 for special events.
