Join us for Africa's largest Easter Egg Hunt

The National Zoo will host the largest Easter Egg Hunt ever staged on the continent on Saturday 7 April, proudly supported by Cadbury, who donated a whopping 35 000 Easter eggs for the hunt! The event is open to all visitors and starts at 10:00am at the main entrance of the zoo.

Win fabulous prizes in our Twitter competition!

A range of exciting prizes will be up for grabs in the NZG's first ever Twitter competition. These include a return flight on Mango airlines to any of their destinations, airtime vouchers, free zoo tickets, NuMetro movie vouchers, CDs and Roman's Pizza vouchers. To win, participants need to find the six Easter Bunnies hidden around the Zoo and tweet them at the specified sponsors or post the picture on the National Zoological Gardens Facebook Page.

Every hour, on the hour one winner will be chosen for one specific prize. The winner will be notified by tweet (reply) or Facebook message that he/she has won and needs to come and claim the prize. The grand prize, a return flight on Mango airlines will be announced on Tuesday
10 April 2012.

Participate in our Easter family activities

Over and above the Easter Egg Hunt and Twitter competition, the NZG will host family activities throughout the long weekend. These include an Egg & Spoon Race, a Bunny-Hop Sack Race, talks about animals at the zoo, meeting the Easter Bunny, as well as face painting and a colouring corner for the kids.

View the programme

The Easter programme forms part of a string of family attractions developed by the National Zoo for its visitors. According to Craig Allenby, NZG Commercial Services and Business Development Manager, the sustained rise in the popularity of urban tourism has seen visitor numbers soar.

"The zoo has become a family urban leisure destination attracting interest from across the province, and beyond," he says.
