You can book a night-time tour of the Johannesburg Zoo any night from Monday to Saturday, and get ferried around to peer at the red pandas, glowing scorpions, genets, raccoons and of course, the beautiful big cats.
The Johannesburg Zoo offers two night-time tours: one for the kids, called the moonlight tour, and one for adults, the night tour. There are also sunset tours, from 4pm to 6pm, just to take the edge off the early evening. You can take your own picnic and watch the diurnal animals settle down for the night, while the nocturnal ones wake up. And if you're feeling particularly adventurous, and don't mind falling asleep to the roar of the lions, book for a safe sleep-over in the zoo. You'll take your own tents and gear, and provide your own meal. You'll be taken on a walking tour of the zoo.
