Lion Eye to Eye

Journey right into the lion’s den!

Ever wanted to look an apex predator right in the eye?

Since Disney’s The Lion King was first released in cinemas 25 years ago, we have lost half of Africa’s lions. Only 20,000 remain and the time to act is now.

Your visit to Perth Zoo helps support the vital conservation work we undertake and we want to invite you to come and visit our lions!

This is your chance to follow a zoo keeper into the lions' den.

It’ll be toes pressed right up on the yellow line, if you dare, to get close to these magnificent animals.

You'll be escorted into the night quarters to hear all about Makeba and Uzuri as they're given their lunch. Ask our keepers all the questions you like.

Be amazed by their guttural growls and roaring appetite during this spine-tingling experience.
