IT'S easy to think there's nothing for kids to do in Johannesburg, but the city has a range of fun, interesting and instructive activities for them to get hooked on. Here are some suggestions to get you going.

 

 



The Zoo

A favourite place for children is the Joburg Zoo in Parkview, an animal paradise with lions and elephants, monkeys and gorillas, seals and polar bears. The farmyard section, designed for under-sixes, also has cuddly animals which can be picked and patted. Kids can also ride on the tractor ferry, do an organised trot around the zoo, or catch a moonlight tour . There's also a programme of educational events and a safe environment with green lawns and picnicking areas ensures plenty of space for running around. The zoo is open from 8.30am to 5.30pm, seven days a week and secure parking is available at the entrance on Upper Park Drive in Saxonwold.

Duck feeding

 

Ducks and geese are just waiting for small people to feed them at Zoo Lake, Emmarentia Dam and Gillooly's Farm. Adult supervision is essential to stop them falling in the water. All three venues also provide plenty of lawn space for children to play, fly kites or roller blade, and for parents to picnic. Parking for Zoo Lake is from Westwold Way, and parking for Emmarentia Dam is just over the bridge off Olifants Road. Gillooly's Farm is in Boeing Road, Morninghill (take the Linksfield off ramp from the N3). Other green spaces in the city include Wemmer Pan, Thokoza Park (Ntuli Street, Moroka), and the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden (Malcolm Road, Poortview, Roodepoort).
