Although Kruger National Park (approx. 5hrs) and Pilanesberg Game Reserve (approx 2.5hrs) aren't too far away, the Johannesburg Zoo is still worth a visit. The 81-hectare zoo, located in the leafy northern suburb of Parkview, is one of the few places in the world with white lions and the only zoo in South Africa to have successfully bred Siberian Tigers, the largest cats in the world. The Johannesburg Zoo is open Monday to Sunday and on public holidays including Christmas and New Years. Business Hours are 8:30 to 17:30; the last entry is at 16:00. The entrance fees are currently R50pp for adults and R30pp for children and pensioners.
