Something ROOOOARSOME is happening at Chester Zoo this autumn!

We’re opening a BRAND NEW habitat for our pride of endangered Asiatic lions, giving our visitors the opportunity to see these incredible animals like never before!

You’ll be transported to the dry forest and savannah habitats of Gir National Park in India; the only place in the world where Asiatic lions can still be found!

Become a lion expert by taking part in our programme of events and activities* to find out what makes these BIG cats so impressive – from their hunting techniques and behaviours to their incredible characteristics.

BRING YOUR PRIDE TO SEE OURS

On top of that, you can also get involved with our interactive games and discover how our zoo experts are working to save the species from extinction, as you explore this expansive new habitat.

So, bring your pride to see ours for a rooooooarsome treat this October half term.

This brand new habitat for the zoo’s Asiatic lions is taking shape.  This expansive zone will span 4,790 square metres and has been specially created for the lions.  These developments are part of our ongoing long-term plans for the future.
