“North Bengal Animals Park debuts Lion Safari.”

Exciting developments are underway as the West Bengal Forest Department collaborates with North Bengal Animals Park authorities to introduce the state’s inaugural lion safari at the animal park in Siliguri.

Scheduled to kick off in the first week of January next year, the safari will feature a pair of female lions from Alipur Zoo in Kolkata and another pair from Tripura. The construction of a spacious 20-acre enclosure, complemented by night shelters, is currently in its final stages.

Kamal Sarkar, the Director of the park, shared insights into this upcoming venture, revealing plans to introduce two pairs of Asiatic lions from Alipur and Tripura zoos. Construction of the enclosure is already underway, with night shelters nearing completion. Sarkar expressed optimism that the work would conclude by the end of December, paving the way for the safari to commence in the first week of the New Year.

Once open to the public, this lion safari will provide both domestic and international tourists with a new and thrilling attraction.

This initiative is expected to positively impact tourism in the region by offering a unique and enriching experience for wildlife enthusiasts.

Bengal Safari, an expansive open-air zoological park sprawling over 297 hectares on the outskirts of Siliguri, has already captivated visitors with enclosures featuring the Royal Bengal Tiger, gharial (fish-eating crocodile), Asiatic black bear, rhinoceros, and an open-air aviary.

The addition of the lion safari has emerged as a prominent attraction in recent years, poised to elevate the park’s allure and provide visitors with a diverse and immersive wildlife experience.
