Visitor Information

Lion’s Den

MARYLAND ZOO- “One of the top ten behind-the-scenes tours in America”travel

Behind-the-Scenes experiences are private, specially designed tours and are scheduled personally for you. These unique up close encounters are planned and coordinated with each individual group in mind.

The Lion’s Den is home to the Zoo’s three lions. A keeper will guide you through the lion’s den and share fascinating facts about what makes lions unique, how they survive in the wild and what it takes to care for our pride. Don’t be surprised if you feel and hear roars and other sounds from the lions as they reverberate off the den’s walls.


For questions or assistance with scheduling, contact the Group Sales Office.
