The Johannesburg Zoo is turning 119 years old in March. This news is according to Joburg Newsroom. The zoo offers pupils and teachers a discounted entry fee for the entire month as part of the celebrations. City Parks and Zoo’s GM for Stakeholder & Public Relations, Jenny Moodley, highlights that the zoo is excellent for learning and entertainment.
Moodley explains, “The Zoo is like an outdoor classroom with many educational and engaging learning opportunities. We are happy to reduce our entry fees during our birthday month to allow more people to enjoy our beloved zoo.”
Scholars and teachers can enjoy a special rate of R19 per person, enabling schools to book more pupils to visit the zoo.
Moodley encourages schools to take advantage of this opportunity and let learners experience the 55 hectares of land at the zoo, home to over 320 animal species and approximately 2,000 animals. Among these animals are critically endangered species such as the Pickersgill Reed frog and others.
To make a booking, interested parties can contact Lebo Moalusi at 011 646-2000 or [email protected], or Esther Senungula at 011 646-2000 or [email protected]. The Joburg Zoo and all its creatures eagerly look forward to seeing visitors in March.
