HELLO! Magazine: Name the lion cub competition

Name an African Lion Cub - competition closed!

Woburn Safari Park has teamed up with HELLO! Magazine to offer readers the chance to name one of the gorgeous African lion cubs, born at Woburn Safari Park on the 24th April 2020.

The 'lockdown litter' have been enjoying their secluded pen with mum for the first weeks of their life. Now, following their crucial innoculations jab, they're enjoying their first trips outdoors.

Dakota's litter of five is her second and she is the proud mother of five little cubs.

The new litter may be seen in the small paddock next to the lion house in the Kingdom of Carnivores drive-through enclosure. Mum decides if the weather and the temperature is suitable for her young cubs and lucky visitors may see the new family in their paddock from 9.30am-1.30pm each day.

The five little arrivals are growing well, tasting their first meat and spending lots of time playing and enjoying their new found freedom in the fresh air.


Now it's your chance to name one of the male cubs, with an appropriate African name and you could win tickets to visit the park and see them for yourself!

Keepers would like African themed names, in keeping with the lions' wild origins. They will choose their favourite name from the list of entries, and pick a winner after the closing date - Sunday 12th July.
