VIP Lion Experience

Our incredible Lion Feeding Experience offers you the chance to meet and feed our powerful, endangered Asiatic lion.

£150 for one person or £250 for two!

Step behind the scenes in this daring, hands-on adventure! Meet one of our keepers and help prepare the lion's meat before heading over to their enclosure and being introduced to these majestic animals.  Then steady your heartbeat and get ready to feed a lion with only the enclosure railings between yourself and their powerful jaws.

During the feed you can soak up fascinating lion facts from our highly experienced lion keeper, whilst learning all about the problems their species are facing in the wild and the work we do to help support them.

Your behind the scenes encounter will last approximately 30 minutes and include:

  • Free admission to the Zoo for the participant and a guest
  • The unforgettable chance to get even closer to our endangered Asiatic lions
  • Go behind the scenes to help prepare the lions’ lunch
  • The thrilling opportunity to feed our lions
  • A special souvenir
  • The opportunity to learn about this incredible species and ask our knowledgeable keepers all about our Asiatic lions
  • Complimentary lunch voucher for The Hide Restaurant
