Port Lympne is home to a gorgeous pride of Lions. Mum Oudrika keeps a close eye on the 2-year-old girls from their first litter, Binti and Kulinda, as well as their 3 playful cubs born earlier this year. The pride can be seen in their spacious new enclosure at the bottom of the reserve.

Key Facts about Panthera leo leo
Natural range: North Africa Height: 1 metre at the shoulder Weight: 200kg Diet: Carnivore
The Barbary lion was once found across North Africa, but has been tragically extinct in the wild since the last known specimen was shot in Morocco in 1922. In the past, Barbary lions were hunted and trapped for use in Roman gladiatorial games and for display in menageries, including that of The Tower of London.
In modern times, Barbary lions can only be found in captivity. Adras, the stunning male lion at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve, is a Barbary lion.
Male Barbary lions can be distinguished from other subspecies by their paler eyes and longer, heavier mane which extends along the belly.
Adopt the 'king of beasts' and support the vital overseas work of The Aspinall Foundation.
