Featured Activity - Hartebeespoort Dam Snake & Animal Park

Hartbeespoort Dam Snake Park and Animal Farm is one of South Africa's premier snake parks. Less than one hour from most areas of Johannesburg, it is easily accessible and situated in a very picturesque area of the country.

Whilst the primary focus is on their very extensive Snake Park, they also have an Animal Park, which is home to many local TV and Movie animal celebrities! The Park is world-renowned for it's breeding of threatened and endangered species and is also home to a large breeding group of Chimpanzees.

The Snake Park holds regular educational courses for people who come into contact with snakes in their day-to-day routine. These courses are a must for everybody interested in snakes. The beginners course is a two hour course @ only R300 and the Advanced course is held over a full day @ only R600. For more information check out their page on

Boat trips on the Hartebeespoort Dam are also offered by this activity operator and are an ideal way to get to see the local area and birdlife.
