Top football stars including England Captain, Harry Kane and Tottenham team mate Kieran Trippier met Four Lions (and some Tigers) over the weekend for the opening of Paradise Wildlife Park’s fabulous new Lion Pride Lands habitat. The England World Cup stars were on hand to see Paradise’s four white lions, Moto (a male,12 years old) and lionesses Kya (12 years), Izulu (10 years) and Zuri (6 years) roaming in their new habitat in the centre of the animal park which is based in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.

The lion’s new home is three times the size of their previous enclosure and features two substantial outside habitats, a large indoor on-show den and two indoor
off-show dens. The habitat has been designed to immerse our visitors in the lion’s world, bringing them as close as possible to Africa’s top predators. Visitors will be able to walk into the heart of the Pride Lands and stand inside a spreading baobab tree that separates the lion’s two outside areas. In addition, a ranger outlook HQ, with an intimate den for the lions, will allow visitors to view the lions up exceptionally close, finally, there’s a breath-taking viewing gallery overlooking the main habitat to enjoy.

Visitors can also get a taste of their own personal safari with the fantastic jeep feature that allows visitors and lions to sit face to face! All this… but the real stand out point of Pride Lands (and a photographer’s dream) has to be stunning Pride Rock, towering over the area.

Talking about the launch of Pride Lands, Paradise / ZSH Director, Lynn Whitnall, said;

“Pride Lands is just the latest development in Paradise’s ongoing commitment to vibrant conservation presented within fabulous, educational wildlife park. We hope this new area will help visitors to experience our lions in a way they never have before and leave them inspired and motivated to help protect, not just lions, from extinction but all of Africa’s incredible animals and habitats.”
