NEW FOR SUMMER 2023
See lions on foot for the first time in the Safari Park’s history! Opening Friday 7th July.
Lions are impressive, large cats that live in groups, which are called prides. One of the most recognisable aspects of a lion is its mane, which is the longer hair male lions grow around their head, neck and chest. The colour of a mane can vary from lighter blondes, to much darker browns and blacks. Male lions roar to warn the pride about danger, scare off intruders and show their dominance – it can be heard up to five miles away!
The new habitat is home to four male lions who were all born at the Park in 2019 – brothers Hodge, Harabi and Havoc and their half-brother Hercules.
Guests will be able to watch the siblings from the new viewpoint, as they explore their new home which is enriched with scented planting, pools, climbing stations and dens.
State-of-the-art housing has been built for our lions, surrounded by an enriched habitat, thriving with vegetation and allowing these big cats to have 24-hour access to their indoor and outdoor environments.
Have a chance to take part on centre stage as the STAR OF THE SEA LION SHOW.
