Minizoo?


What is minizoo?

Mobilezoo celebrated its 7th birthday on 28 October 2018 and our main focus remains to educate people about the pros and cons of keeping exotic animals as pets, the legality of some local animals kept as pets and general animal behaviours as well as other interesting facts. Our target audience is children as they are most likely to be the driving force behind acquiring these animals thus we focus on schools, pre-schools, family events, exhibitions, expos and at times children's parties.

As the owner and main presenter of Mobilezoo I do not deviate from my educational message even at kids parties and I normally declined functions for young kids and small pre-schools. My wife Neeltjie can effectively communicate with these youngsters and created Minizoo to cater for that age group, complementing what I do in Mobilezoo and adding a presentation for the younger guys using some of our and other more suitable abandoned animals for her presentations.

That is how Minizoo was born, an although a new separate entity officially opened 8 December 2018 she has been working with me for the past three years accompanying us to schools, family days, parties etc. gaining hands-on experience and successfully standing in for me at times. We complement each other in all terrains of our lives and even our passions and now career paths overlap.

This makes our combined offering unique as you now have somebody that caters for different ages and we can host simultaneous educational sessions at a venue. Each team is an owner operated entity with our own unique animals and educational message. We can also seamlessly combine our talents to cater for larger numbers and corporate events as both look after and care for our rescue critters.

Neeltjie Barnardt, the owner of Minizoo has her own presentation style and uses many similar but also her own unique selection of animals to cater for smaller guys. The only animals that will not accompany her will be the Meerkat, Monitor Lizard, Monkey, Maccaw, and Larger snakes.
