The sanctuary is well known for its unique plexiglass cage experience. You get to experience and see the lions like never before. You get to safely watch, hear and smell the lions without the fear of getting hurt.

Only two visitors can enter the cage at any given point to look at these beautiful animals. However, it is a strange experience for the lions as they just can’t get through to the humans, which they think are their snacks for the day.

Visitors only above 14 can enter the glass cage and enjoy a close look at the majestic animals. However, the experience depends on the climatic conditions and the availability of the staff.

There are small windows and circular holes that can give you a very close look at the lions. Thus, it brings the experience of being with the animals in their natural habitat. The windows & holes are safe and too small for the paws of the lion to get through.
