ZSL London Zoo

London Zoo has opened its biggest and most breath-taking experience yet: Land of the Lions!

With over 720 different species of animal, ZSL London Zoo is a brilliant way to immerse yourself into the animal kingdom.

Enter the crumbling ruin of an amphitheatre-style Lion Temple and see the majestic big cats roaming just metres away, separated only by fine wires.

Transporting visitors from the heart of London to the vibrant setting of Sasan Gir, the exhibit immerses visitors in the sounds, sights and native wildlife of India, while highlighting the importance of conserving these beautiful and endangered animals.

Land of the Lions also supports a global breeding effort, helping to secure the future of the species by working with Zoos all over the world to ensure the existence of a healthy population continues.

For those who want to experience a taste of conservation in action, Land of the Lions sees visitors become part of an interactive adventure as they help ZSL’s forest rangers deal with a ‘lion-emergency’ in the Gir Forest, and lend a hand to the veterinary team who come to the rescue.

With 2,500sqm of breath-taking space, including an overhead walkway, re-creations of Sasan Gir train station, a crumbling temple, Indian high street and so much more, Land of the Lions will inform, inspire and excite wildlife lovers of all ages and promises to be an experience unlike any other!
