Visitors to the Johannesburg Zoo can look forward to a multi-story car park that is nearing completion.

Half a million visitors are welcomed to the zoo each year and parking space became inadequate, people resorted to parking along streets in the neighbourhood, often blocking driveways especially over weekends.



The shortage of parking space had also led to an increase in the number of informal car guards and vehicle break-ins.

Construction on the new parkade began in July 2015. The project was temporarily halted midway when contractors discovered an historic refuse heap on the construction site.

Over R17 million was allocated for the first phase of construction, a further R20 million will be spent on the second phase, which is scheduled for completion in November 2017.



The multi-million rand parkade will consist of a parking deck for over 600 vehicles and parking will initially cost R15 a day.


Visitors can park at alternative parking areas; Military Museum or Erlswold Way entrance whilst construction forges ahead.
