Lion Camp®

A lion’s life is all about sleeping, napping, and resting. In a 24-hour period, lions have short bursts of intense activity followed by long bouts of lying around that can total up to 21 hours! These gorgeous felines are good climbers and often rest in trees, perhaps to catch a cool breeze or to get away from flies. You may see one of our African lions relaxing in an acacia tree at Lion Camp®!

You can observe natural lion behaviors as the cats romp in the grass, explore the logs and rocks, or rest in the cool shade. Come right up to the large glass panels for some eye-to-eye moments with the beasts. Meet a lion up close during a Behind-the-Scenes Safari.
