From November 1st until 19th December, the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens will play host to lifesize, moving dinosaurs!
The expo combines a spectacular outdoor showcase of life-size dinosaur replicas with a theatrical performance involving realistic ‘animatronic’ dinosaurs – dubbed ‘The Untold Story of the African Dinosaur Mystery’ – plus a host of fun activities for kids and adults.
The Dino Expo takes place at the Education Centre of the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens in Emmarentia on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 November to 7 December, and daily from 10 to 19 December.
There are three 3-hour slots – 09h00 to 12h00, 12h00 to 15h00 and 15h00 to 18h00 – and two packages to choose from: standard, which includes the Dino Expo Tour and entrance to the Adventure Lands where you will find jumping castles, water slides, and the like; and VIP, which includes the above as well as the 50-minute theatrical show.
Standard tickets cost R 30 for kids (2-12 years) and R 60 for adults (13 years and older), and VIP tickets cost R 70 for kids and R 120 for adults, and can be bought through Computicket.
