ZSL London Zoo: Step into the ‘Land of the Lions’

Rating:

What’s on London was given access this week to the amazing new Land of the Lions enclosure at ZSL London Zoo.  The latest addition to one of the capital’s most popular attractions opens its doors to the public tomorrow (25th March) and they’re in for a treat.

The enclosure – costing £5.2 million – transports visitors from the heart of London to the vibrant and exotic setting of Gujarat state, home to the Asiatic lions.  It’s breathtaking, from the time you enter to the moment you stand just a few feet away from the majestic animals.

And Land of the Lions is more than just another enclosure: it’s a piece of conservation, with great importance attached to saving the species from extinction.  ZSL’s Asiatic Lions Campaign raised the funds to create it and continues to carry out vital work in the wild to protect this endangered species.
