The Zoo is an ideal place for an education session with your class, a chilled family picnic or quality time with friends and family. We are happy to inform you that for the month of March, our entry fees for school groups and teachers, children up to the age of 12 and all senior citizens will be R19-00 pp – isn’t this great news. It means you can visit us many times in the month of March.

REMOVAL OF TREES ON COUNCIL OWNED LAND
JCPZ does not permit the cutting down of trees. The only circumstances under which JCPZ will cut down a tree is when the tree is severely dying back, diseased beyond recovery or dead. Trees can only be removed should they pose a danger to the public or private property. JCPZ regards the following requests as invalid reasons for trees to be removed and therefore such requests may not be approved under the following conditions:
- Security hazard
- Dropping of leaves/seeds/flowers into a pool or gutters
- Blocking sunlight
- Blocking of street lights (making the property dark)
- Blocking residents’ view
- The tree is exotic/invasive
- Wants to construct an additional entrance to the resident’s property and the tree is in the way.
- The tree grows into the overhead power cables, the tree blocks the reception of the residents satellites, etc.
- Should the customer insist on the removal of the tree for any of the invalid reasons stated above or other reasons, it may be done but then the customer will be required to pay for (1) the value of the tree (as JCPZ is losing an asset) and (2) the labour costs for removing the tree.
