The Company

About Us

The Zoo Lake Development Committee NPC (often referred to as the Zoo Lake Users Committee, which was its predecessor) is a non-profit organisation that seeks to restore, enhance and develop the Zoo Lake park, in conjunction with the City of Johannesburg. The members are all volunteers who share their passion about the Zoo Lake park.

The Committee and its activities are financed purely by donations.

The citizens of Johannesburg share a great love for our park, and its anti-apartheid history, which is demonstrated though the actions of a large number of volunteers and active group of volunteers and donors. The park is there for the enjoyment of all who use it. It is a welcome green lung and is a respite from the hustle and bustle of a very active and noisy city.

We believe that a well functioning public park builds bridges between communities and serves to enhance our democracy.

Tax Deductions

The company has been registered by the South African Revenue Services for a Section 18A deduction status. In terms of this approval, all donations that are made to further the purposes of the Committee may be deducted from the donor's taxable income in the year in which the donation is made.
