A letter from the chairman:




The chill of the winter months are upon us, but the Friends of the National Zoo still endeavour to create a fun and warm atmosphere at every Fun Walk, held every third Saturday of a month.


June, July and August are our coldest months of the year and therefore we have decided to start the Fun Walks a little later, 06:30 for 7:00.



We have also made it easier for you to buy entrance tickets and pay for food, by introducing a new electronic payment method. Discounts are given to groups of people of 15 or more entering the Fun Walk, kindly let us know in advance to qualify for this discount by contacting us via email: This allows the queues to flow faster and for you to get started on the race quicker, filling on delicious food after the race in one easy electronic payment method.

We have the new Pebble system in place which takes
the hassle out of carrying cash on you. Pay on the spot!

The Friends of the National Zoo is busy upgrading and refurbishing the Farm Yard.

We need volunteers to help restore the Farm Yard please contact Lettie: 012 323 0294 /
