Tygerberg Zoo

All right, we’re not going to lie: although it’s Cape Town’s only ‘proper’ zoo, Tygerberg is very much on the rustic side, so don’t go if you’re looking for the whole glitzy African Safari experience. What makes this particular one cool though is that it sports some of the animal kingdom’s weirder beasts, including llamas, potbellied pigs and armadillos.
