Once the sun sets over Joburg, a new day starts for the nocturnal animals of the Joburg Zoo.

Join us for an Open Moonlight Tour and discover the Zoo's active nightlife, as the big cats, caracal, striped hyena, honey badger, porcupine, Eurasian eagle owl and other animals go about their business by the light of the moon.

Experience a 90-minute night-time ferry ride around the Zoo, with stop-offs at various enclosures to see the Zoo's nocturnal inhabitants.

Afterwards, round off your adventure, as you enjoy your picnic dinner baskets, with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and marshmallows around a bonfire.

Experience the Zoo by moonlight
