Rhythm of Africa returns with a fantastic program for families with live African music and kids’ activities.

Now in its twentieth year, Rhythm of Africa has become a must do summer tradition, bringing together families and friends for a magic mix of warm summer nights, African beats and
picnics on the grass.

The program will feature live contemporary and traditional African bands and a range of special activities for the kids including drumming workshops, hair-braiding and face-painting.

If the weather’s warm don’t forget to bring the kids’ bathers and watch the sun set from Hippo Beach. While you relax beneath the thatched umbrellas the kids will love playing in the sand
and cooling off under the fountains.

During the night you can purchase African-inspired dishes, but visitors are also welcome to bring their own blankets, hampers and beverages for a relaxed picnic on the lawn.

Proceeds from the concert series help Zoos Victoria fight wildlife extinction.
