“Few things in life are free, but the National Zoological Gardens of South Africa offers four free days for senior citizens throughout the year; and 2017 has been no different,” the NZG said in a statement.

“Our golden oldies can enjoy free entrance to our zoo, aquarium and reptile park on Tuesday, 7 November 2017 from 08:30.”

NZG said that the day’s activities would begin with complimentary tea, coffee and cake at the Zoo’s Flamingo Restaurant from 09h00 (first-come-first-served). 

“A special meal will also be prepared by our restaurant for the day. Bookings for this meal are essential. For further information and bookings, please call 012-339 2700.”
