JHB Zoo Snooze

Johannesburg Zoo fund raiser

By Leon De Kock

Once again, it was time to wrap up warmly, bring out the camping kit and head into the wild west, or rather the heart of Johannesburg, for a night of camping at the Johannesburg zoo. This is always a treat, a small adventure that not many people get to experience.

Sharron (Pink Hair) lay on a feast of potjiekos for everybody to dig into after the guided tour given by two of the zoo personnel. Lamb, chicken and vegetable, curry or not curry, it was all on the menu. Together with a few glasses of your favourite drink to keep you warm, and of course a big bonfire to keep everybodyís spirits up, it became quite late before some of us crawled into bed.

Morning came all too soon, especially with the screaming of the gibbons as an alarm call. It was time to warm our hands around a mug of hot coffee, and then quickly take down the tents and get out of there before the big mothers day rush began.

Later, children and older folks alike will get to tell friends and family about the adventure, how we camped out in the wildest part of Africa for one night, in the middle of Johannesburg!

Thanks Sharron for arranging this event. It was, however just heart breaking to see the amount of litter people leave behind when leaving the zoo for the day and expect that someone else will clean their mess up.
