A family of four endangered tigers are coming to Chessington World of Adventures, to live in a new multi-million-pound attraction.

Currently living in Sweden, the amur tigers will become the stars of Land of the Tiger, which will open in spring 2018.

Russell Bowes, zoo operations director, said: "This is huge news for us here. We've been working tirelessly to make sure our tiger quartet will settle in perfectly to their new home, and we can’t wait to welcome Olga, Tsar, Kalinka and Kyra to Chessington.”

The enclosure will feature overhead trails, meaning visitors will be able to see the tigers from a new perspective as they walk above their heads.

Mr Bowes said: “With three trails connecting three habitats, this is the first enclosure of its kind in Europe, giving the foursome – who, like domestic cats, enjoy surveying their surroundings from up high – the opportunity to roam and explore as they would naturally.”

There will be the opportunity to join carnivore keepers for experiences with the tigers, and a log flume will also be built at the attraction.

Eighteen months have gone into the preparation and design of Land of the Tiger, which is the zoo’s largest investment in five years.
