Boats on Zoo Lake

Zoo Lake is a large park situated around a man made lake, only 15 minutes from the center of Johannesburg. Zoo Lake is one of Johannesburg’s most popular outdoor spaces.


The land was donated by Beit and Co in 1904, with a stipulation that the park be divided into a public park and a zoological garden. It opened for the first time to the public in 1908.
