This experience provides an exclusive tour behind the scenes of our African Lion House.

You will journey to Realm of the Lions, where you will have a private tour of the newly built state-of-the-art Lion House and meet our pride of African lions. 


You will also have the opportunity to feed our lions, and to meet with our highly experienced Carnivore Keepers, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have. 

Accompanied by a personal Safari Guide you and your party will enjoy an exclusive look behind the scenes at one of Europe’s best lion house structures. Your guide will give you fascinating facts about the animals, and there will be photographic opportunities so that you will have the perfect memento to remind you of your special experience. 

The fantastic package also includes entrance to the Safari Drive-Through, Discovery Trail and African Village, as well as animal food, a guidebook, and a mid morning snack and drink in Dino Diner. Photographs will be taken throughout the experience, and we will put these pictures onto your very own CD, available for you to take away on the day. In addition, you will be provided with a Free Return Ticket, enabling you to visit the Park again during the same season.
