Big Cats – Lions and Tigers

You are here

Unfortunately, the Big Cat House remains closed due to COVID-19 Restrictions. However, you can still see the cats in their outdoor enclosures.

Our Big Cat House is one of the earlier buildings on site and we hope to be upgrading it in the not too distant future. It’s currently home to our African lions and Amur tiger, although, slotted between them is our meerkat enclosure, always a popular destination!

Our lions, father and son, Wallace and Khari, enjoy a specious, multi surface outdoor enclosure with a heated “rock” which enables them to be out in the fresh air all year round. There are plenty of hiding places for the lions’ food which provides them with daily enrichment as they use their great sense of smell to find their meat.

The house also provides a home to our stunning Amur tiger, Alyona. The outdoor area comprises a large grass paddock with plenty of shrubs and trees for shade, a pool and platforms on which she spends much of hertime chilling.
