CELEBRATING WORLD LION DAY

Primarily a day to raise awareness of these very special cats,
we also focus on raising funds to give support to those working in the field
helping to protect and secure a future for lions in the wild!
For a limited period we are offering up to 10 special lion hand feeding experiences a day, for a minimum donation of £60 per person (18 years + only), booked on a first come first served.
You can hand feed one of our lion family, bring your camera and we'll take a photo for you to treasure forever!
Places are limited so to guarantee your place you can pre-book now by calling 01223 891308 to pay by card over the phone (best to call after 2.30pm) or email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will call you back to take payment, we can also take your zoo admission fee at the same time if you wish.
Please note pre-payments are not transferable or refundable should you be unable to attend for your booked session. Bookings can be made on the day if space is available. Maximum two people at a time, you must be 18 years plus to participate, children under 14 must be accompanied by another adult whilst you take part in the experience.
The money raised from this activity will go towards funding the annual salary our three supported Maasai Warriors Kisimir, Mingati and Gisa.

Apart from humans, lions were once the most widespread mammal on the planet, but their numbers and range have gradually been reduced and they can now only be found in small areas of Africa and India. 50 years ago the African population had dropped to around 500,000 as a direct result of human activity, since then numbers have continued to crash and are now down to around just 20,000.
Some experts believe that unless urgent action is taken, lions will be extinct in the wild within our lifetime.
We are working to help protect the remaining wild population by supporting The Lion Guardians, a team of specially dedicated Maasai warriors, trained to protect lion prides from hunting and poaching in Kenya and Tanzania.
