A Night Out at Joburg Zoo

Feast your eyes on an enchanting collection of illuminated life-size animal characters. Bring the family along for this festive feel. Visitors will also enjoy:

Live Music and Ballet
Classical, harmonious entertainment. In addition to daily performances, expect a classical performance of the Nutcracker by Joburg Ballet. Tap your feet at the Zoo Bandstand from 1 – 8 December.

Food market
Even more exciting is the exceptional exquisite flavours of food and beverage offerings for all ages.

Craft market

LED and energy efficient lighting decorations result in an exclusive night market experience.

Tranquil walk
Take a stroll at the zoo on a designated lit route away from the animals, under trees decorated in enchanting lights. Moreover, the Zoo boasts the Big Five, a vast 54 hectare site with animals from across all continents including rare species of animals from the Amazon.

The Festival of Lights entertainment will vary on a daily basis. 

“After attending the Garden of Lights in Berlin a few years back, and seeing the wild life lights concept that happens annually at the Zoo, we thought we could make it a festive treat by using fascinating LED and energy efficient lights to make our very own night market experience at the Joburg Zoo, a treat for all ages”, says Xoliswa Nduneni–Ngema, Chief Executive Officer at Joburg City Theatres.
