Embarking on any adventure is exciting, but beginning your journey through our Tiger Trail is something else! Our Russian-themed Tiger Trail is home to two tigers, sisters Bira and Sinda, who joined the safari as part of a European breeding programme in 2010.
Come nose-to-nose with Sinda and Bira like never before at our pond viewing spot. You might even spot them splashing about in the water!
Amur tigers mainly come from Eastern Russia, where the climate consists of extremely cold temperatures, especially in the winter, when they can drop to -38 degrees!
Amur tigers get used to these climates, so when the temperatures begin to rise in the warmer months, they use pools of water to cool off. In Sinda and Bira’s new home, we’ve made sure they have a large pool to play and swim in, allowing them to feel comfortable in all temperatures.
Did you know tigers don’t like getting water in their eyes and will often enter the water backwards to avoid it? See if you can spot Bira and Sinda going in for a swim on your visit!

Amur tiger cubs are born blind, which is why they stay very close to their mother for the first two months.
An Amur tiger’s fang can measure from five to eight centimetres, the largest of the cat species!
