Four endangered tigers are coming to Chessington World of Adventures, and the resort has announced when the public will be able to see them.

Visitors will be able to meet Olga, Tsar, Kalinka and Kyra, who are currently living in Sweden, on May 5 at the multi-million-pound Land of the Tiger attraction.

All four are Amur Tigers, the world’s largest tiger species.

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.”

Visitors will have the chance to join carnivore keepers for experiences with the tigers, as well as ride the log flume at Tiger Rock, and learn about Amur Tigers as part of the resort’s Learn Your Stripes initiative.

The opening will mark the end of 18 months of planning, involving the zoo’s biggest investment for five years.
