Monarto Zoo’s new Lions 360 was officially launched yesterday ahead of being opened to the public from this Sunday.

Developed by Zoos SA, Lions 360 allows visitors to safely walk through a tunnel under the lion enclosure and emerge in the heart of the 10 hectare habitat of the lions’ den, surrounded by up to 11 lions.

 

The Lions 360 experience is expected to increase visitors by an extra 3000 people annually, spending an estimated $1 million in the region annually.
