‘Zoo Trot’ at Johannesburg Zoo
Walk or run for fun with the kids (5km or 10km routes) at the ‘Zoo Trot’ on Sun 8 Jan at 07h00 for 07h30 – Enquiries 011 712 6817. R55pp.
The zoo provides a great opportunity throughout the year to run or walk in the peaceful setting.
You and your family can join other zoo trotters, running to beat your own record, or walk with family and friends at your own pace to reduce stress, build stamina, keep fit or just socialise.
The Trot is open to young and old – some parents even push their babies in strollers on the walk.
The trot consists of a 5 or 10 km fun run or walk inside the zoo grounds. Direction markers are placed along the route to guide you and zoo staff are present to help you stay on route. The route passes some of the most popular zoo animals such as the lions, elephants, giraffe, monkeys and one of most resilient animals: Phila, the Black Rhino.
Registration opens at 07h00, the Trot begins at 07h30 and ends at 10h00. The special reduced entry fee is R 55 each and children under the age of three get in free.
For every three consecutive trots completed, you will receive a special Zoo Trot medal, featuring one of the zoo animals.
After the walk/run, Zoo trotters can enjoy a scrumptious breakfast at the zoo’s Cafe Fino or bring picnic baskets and enjoy the rest of the day at the Johannesburg Zoo.
