This White Lion female was born on the 24/10/2008 and arrived at the Sanctuary on 03/11/2008.

White Lions

  • White lions are technically extinct in the wild.
  • White lions are not albinos, but rather a genetic rarity.
  • White lions have been ruthlessly exploited by the captive breeding industry and intensively inbred to produce victims for canned hunting.

Drakenstein Lion Park’s white lions will not be used for commercial breeding; they have found sanctuary with us.
