From Gorilla Kingdom and the Rainforest Lookout to the Tropical Birds Pavilion, Butterfly Paradise and the Aquarium – plus brand new exhibit Land Of The Lions – there are so many incredible creatures to see.
What's more, at the daily events you can see and learn even more as you watch the keepers at work. Live! In With The Lemurs lets you journey through Mini-Madagascar, while the lemurs have a snack and the presenter gives you the inside scoop on lemur life. At Tiger Territory you can join the Zoo Live Team for a peek into the lives of the five Sumatran tigers. Then take a stroll down to Penguin Beach and watch the penguins feed as they dive, jump and swim in England’s biggest penguin pool.
Land Of The Lions, London Zoo's biggest and most breath-taking exhibit yet, allows you to 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 2,500 square metres 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 – the must-visit attraction of 2016.
