Picnic Paradiso with #PiP


Step right up, ladies and gents! Step right up! For a nostalgic step back in time to rediscover the mystery, magic and thrills of the circus, don’t miss out on the opportunity of experiencing the travelling vintage Le Cirque Picnic Paradiso at the Johannesburg Zoo. 

What Is It?

For an exciting day out for the big kids (no under 18s allowed), enter the old school Big Top Circus tent and be enticed and thrilled by the Ring Master, who will enchant audiences with his array of acts and performances. Make your way to the enchanting shows complete with the “Bearded Lady”, “Two-headed Boy” and even a perhaps a turn at the Roulette tables. Guests can expect a night filled with intrigue, circus games and wonderfully weird drinks stations manned by “strong men” and tutu showgirls. And don’t forget the stilt walkers, who will be the best photo ops for your selfies on the night. From giant swings, games, the show, the “Bearded Lady”, jugglers and old-school cigarette girls, join #PiP for an unforgettable experience.
