Tygerberg Zoo is approx 30km outside of Cape Town on some farmland. It is the worst zoo I have ever had the misfortune of visiting. although the physical condition of the animals seem fine, their living conditions are horrendouz! The fees which are R26 per child and R46 per adult is a total ripoff and they are advertising animals which I am still searching for.

Unique Suggestions: If you feel you must go, remember that there are very few trees for shade, so remember the sunblock and sunhat as well as a bottle of water.

Fun Alternatives: If you must see animals, rather go to a game reserve or for birds, visit the world of birds in Houtbay.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
