Lion Safari to open at Dvur Kralove Zoo

Dvur Kralove Zoo is opening the first Lion Safari in Central and Eastern Europe this weekend. Visitors will be able to drive their cars down a 500 metre long road cutting across the nature reserve where three male lions –or four female lions - roam free. Originally keepers let all the lions into the reserve at the same time but after several conflicts they have been separated. The safari –which has been in trial operation for the past three weeks – cost 18 million Czech crowns.
