During your visit, experience the live open-air shows, showcasing acrobatic animal demonstrations and spectacular tribal dance and pyrotechnics. The Creatures of the Night and Thumbuakar Performance shows add an extra dimension to your animal adventure with their display of animal talent, fire-eating, and tribal dances.

Watch out also for the barasingha deer, the sloth bear and the Night Safari’s pride and joy – the endangered Gir lions.
