Catch a rare sighting of the Toronto Zoo's four male white lion cubs from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm daily, weather permitting! Located in the African Savanna (behind the African Lion Exhibit) the White Lion Cubs Viewing Area is currently home to all four cubs and is also known as their transitioning den. This temporary exhibit serves as an outdoor transitioning den for these young cubs, where they will be able to get more exercise, play and explore within a safe and warm environment.


This outdoor viewing area includes elevated platforms for the cubs, along with weather protection wind shields and a 24 foot long radiant heater, to keep our lions warm during the winter months. As the cubs are still young and the weather conditions varying, all the lions will be given access to both their indoor and outdoor exhibit throughout the day. Accordingly, Zoo staff cannot guarantee a cub sighting.
