Get Closer at Safari Niagara

Join us for our Lion Experience!


Availability: 10:30AM Daily

Each and every day 7 days a week all year long in every possible type of weather, Safari Niagara’s devoted Animal Care Team works diligently to ensure our animals receive the best possible care. Join us for a behind the scenes tour as keepers explain some of the trials and tributes facing them on a daily basis as they care for these noble creatures.

While exploring behind the scenes at the Lion exhibit, you will be face to face with one of the world’s deadliest predators. You will feel the regal Lions breath in your face intensifying your experience. Learn how their physical anatomy contributes to their sheer power and stealth. How they can be so gentle with their offspring yet when in search of food or in danger become a deadly opponent.

Keepers will explain the need for sustainable captive populations; how these populations are governed and the importance it has on wild populations.

Book your behind the scenes tour; come talk to a lion and be amazed.
