    Cirque Africa is considered to be a jawdropping explosion of colour, culture, rhythm and showstoppers. Starring 22 performers from six African countries, its a highly visual show that will take your breath away!

    “Cirque Africa has been called the ‘Lion King on steriods’,” said director Papa Africa, aka Winston Ruddle. The Zimbabwe-born Ruddle, draws many of his talented cast from the ranks of the Hakuna Matata Acrobats trained at the school he established in Tanzania in 2003.

    The show is uplifting, celebratory and joyous. It’s also a critically acclaimed acrobatic and dance experience, born of Ruddle’s desire to celebrate Africa’s colour and people with audiences all over the world.
