We love big cats and couldn't miss the chance to see them up close. The animals at Kingdom of Zion look really happy and healthy - it's a must-see destination.

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about all of the animals in the park. The cats look well cared for and you get the feeling the staff are very passionate about them.

Due to the nature of the park you cannot wander around unaccompanied, this is mainly due to the fact you can get a lot closer to the cats compared to most places. People are welcome to stay longer, we have a lovely picnic area you...More
