Albeit a novelty to sleep in the zoo, I was fairly disappointed in both the guide and the animals we saw - or shall I say, did not see. Many of the cages, including that of the lions were inaccessible for reasons not disclosed. The...More

We ordered a picnic basket from the resraurant which is lovely. It is beautiful to walk through the gardens. If you make the effort to climb to the top of the hill the view over Pretoria is worthwhile. Stunning place.
