Help feed the big cats

Go behind-the-scenes with an experienced keeper before the Park opens to help feed the big cats.

Your Big Cat Breakfast VIP Experience lasts for 90 minutes.

You'll go into the lion house to feed the lions (obligatory face covering required without exception), then you'll watch the lion pride released into their spacious 32 acre reserve. 

Followed by a guided tour of the Kingdom of the Carnivores - with tigers, bears and wolves - you'll get a fascinating insight into the keepers' daily care of the most fearsome residents of the Park.

A great gift for the cat lover in your life! You'll learn all about the African lions and Amur tiger species, their individual characters, adaptations, the threats they face in the wild, and what we're doing to help protect them.
