Big Cat Dinner

Your Big Cats Dinner starts with a behind-the-scenes encounter with our Snow Leopards, Lions and Tigers. Get up close to these amazing creatures, only a metre away through mesh. You will then be taken to your intimate dining area where a candlelit table is set for your party in front of the Lion’s viewing window. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapés as you watch the Lions return to their exhibit … and they watch you. You will then be seated for a delicious three-course dinner with fine drinks.
