VIP Lion Experience

Hand-feed one of our endangered Asiatic lions at Bristol Zoo.

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 hand-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.

This fantastic package also includes free entry into the Zoo for yourself and a friend, a complimentary lunch voucher and a special souvenir mug to remember your extraordinary experience. So get set, bring your camera and prepare for an incredible day.

The lion feeding experience takes place on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:45 - 12:15 and costs £150 for one or £250 for two people.

Alternatively please call 0117 4285 417 or 0117 4285 419. Or contact reception on 0117 4285 300 or email for more information.
