Mitchell Park Zoo

This municipal park and zoo offers a fun and educational day for the kids. Animals include crocodiles, buck, raccoons, cranes, flamingos, wallabies, monkeys and tortoises and the park has a walk-through aviary for the bird lovers amongst us.

A sand-filled playground allows small children to enjoy playing on jungle gyms, swings, slides and other equipment. Paraplegic facilities make sure that even physically challenged visitors have a great time. While you play, mom can relax and enjoy tea or a meal at the Blue Zoo tea garden, nestled among trees and attractive flowerbeds.

Carefully tended lawns are perfect for family picnics, and even skottle braais are allowed. Mitchell Park’s staff members take an interest in educating children on the animal and plant worlds. They teach visitors how to preserve our natural wonders so that future generations may also enjoy them.

Party venues available for hire.
