We went to the Pretoria Zoo yesterday. It was so nice to spend time with my two loves, just the three of us. It was a stunning day, sunshiny and bright.
It was the first time we visited the Pta Zoo. Gosh, horrible part of town! And the parking wasn't very nice either, R20 for a dirt road parking full of hawkers bugging us, and having to cross a super busy road to get to the zoo.
The zoo itself is huge! Well-kept - but can see it's seen better days. The animals all looked fine, and most of them had nice big enclosures.
We spent over 3 hours walking around - great calorie-burn, hehe! Gosh, what a big selection of animals, let me try and remember what we saw:
Flamingos, variety of buck, variety of birds, leopard, monkeys, hyenas, gorilla, bear, tigers, lions, forest giraffe, elephants, zebras, hippo, rhino, camel, seals, koala bears, kangaroos, penguins, fish in the aquarium, alligator, dassies, porcupine, lemurs, buffalo and owls.
Really a great day out!
