Join a special guided tour through the Zoo’s world-class Lions on the Edge exhibit before stepping into the ‘lions’ den’ and visiting the off limits areas with our keepers as they feed and care for these incredible animals.

At such close proximity you will be amazed by the lions' enormous size and powerful roar. 

During this unique experience, keepers will provide an insight into the daily care of the lions in the Zoo and the threats to the survival of this species in the wild as a result of habitat loss, prey depletion and conflict with humans.

You'll also learn more about the Zoo's unique approach to working with communities and wildlife in Northern Kenya, through Beads for Wildlife.

Please note that Lion Encounters are not available at present.
