Set on the corner of Jan Smuts Avenue and West World Street, virtually across from the Johannesburg Zoo, Zoo Lake is usually a hive of activity - dog walkers, joggers, skateboarders and kids.
Zoo Lake is a large park situated around a man-made lake that makes for perfect weekend ambles, only 15 minutes from the centre of Johannesburg. Take in the sights and sounds of the lake in one of the row boats for hire.
The row boats can accommodate up to 6 people per boat. Fun for the kids - take along some bread for them to feed the ducks - lots of fun!
