Don’t be left in the dark.
One of the most established and popular attractions in the city of gold is The Johannesburg Zoo. Founded in 1904, this sanctuary covers 81 hectares of prime, green, northern suburbs land and provides the ideal destination for everyone to observe and engage with all manner of wildlife.
The Johannesburg Zoo does not stop at simply providing a haven for animals and a local attraction for visitors; it is committed to playing an important role in the conservation projects of both indigenous and exotic endangered animals. On March 31st, however, they will be promoting a different kind of conservation- the conservation of our planet.
To celebrate Earth Hour, between 16:30 and 19:30 the zoo will be switching off all of its lights and invites everyone to join them in a camp out on their famous premises. Earth Hour is all about uniting people to protect the planet, with an emphasis on the delicate balance between nature and our adverse affects on it.
On that evening, you can enjoy storytelling around a bonfire, stargazing with experts to guide you, a walking tour, and a chance to enjoy the tranquil and fascinating surrounds of the zoo at night.
The cost is R130 per person and booking is essential.
