Kiburi and Kumari have stepped out into their new enclosure.

The four-year-old lionesses have arrived from Rotterdam Zoo, as part of a European breeding programme designed to safeguard the future of the species.

With only a few hundred Asiatic lions remaining, the species is faced with a serious threat of extinction.

Book your tickets online this weekend and be one of the first to see them.
