In 1998, a local family set about building a major zoo that housed animals in as comfortable surroundings as possible. As such, most of the enclosure sizes are far larger than found in other urban zoos and the husbandry and welfare are aimed at achieving world’s best practices. The addition of Jamala Wildlife Lodge is a major step to bolster the programs that are run by the zoo. The aim is that the funds from Jamala will allow the zoo to continue to grow and support its breeding programs.
We do have two disabled Accessible Rooms - our beautiful Lemur Rooms have both a wheelchair accessible bathroom and a normal bathroom. Ushaka Lodge, the Reef Room and Wild Encounter Room 1 are not Accessible Rooms, but there are no stairs involved. One Jungle Bungalow also has no stairs, while all others and all Giraffe Treehouses have 6 - 8 stairs. If you have trouble walking long distances we can offer mobility scooters for the tours, but you will need to book these and we also do offer a bus pick up for dinner.
