across the continent. Johannesburg is no exception to this rule and families can have a fun time

home to an assortment of animals that come from a diverse range of lands; from Amazon rain-forest
monkeys, African lions, cheetahs and wild dogs, a variety of apes, crocodiles, farm yard animals,
Madagascan lemurs, and a variety of reptiles can be seen.
