The Land of the Lions
The Land of the Lions

The Land of the Lions and the surrounding spaces have been designed to be like a real territory, deep in the savannah. Within these vast plains, everything possible has been done to ensure that the lions, wild dogs, meerkats, and naked mole-rats feel at ease in this breath-taking environment.

Un œil en coulisse

It’s all action with the lions!

In this episode of our web series “Un Œil en Coulisse”, find out how our lion cubs were introduced to the rest of the lion family.

The king of all the animals

A presence unmatched by other felines

Besides the mane, one of the most impressive characteristics of the lion is its powerful roar. It is also the only feline that truly roars! It roars mainly at sunset (and can do so for up to 1 hr). Male lions exhibit this behaviour to signal ownership of their territory. Will you hear it during your visit?

« The zoo is huge which is a good thing if you like to stroll and want to see an enormous variety of animals, they are all there!! The lion and cheetah areas are particuraly impressive, they have a huge space and you can see them so clearly, really beautiful. »

Beauval Nature fights to defend the African lion

In 2011, the PANTHERA association evaluated the status of endangered species in the Niokolo-Koba park in Senegal. The findings were alarming: due to the many pressures (illegal artisanal mining, poaching, bush fires, etc.) that affect this biosphere reserve, the lions’ situation in the park was disturbing

This is why Beauval Nature supports the PANTHERA association in order to fight against these pressures and preserve this endangered species. This fight includes the establishment of surveillance programmes and forest guard patrols, amongst other things.
