Please note: Lion Cub Patting does not happen when we are at Covid-19 alert level 2.

We have new lion cubs who were born on the 1st of May 2021.

They are currently available for visitors to meet and pat at the following times every day:

10.45am to 11.45am
1.00pm to 2.15pm
3.15pm to 4.15pm

You will be able to meet and pat our cubs until early to mid 2022, and of course the sooner you visit the smaller they will be.

There is no additional charge to pat our lion cubs and you do not need to make a booking.  Suitable for all ages.
