Out of Africa Babies | Meet the New Lion & Tiger Cubs

Out of Africa Babies

I grew up visiting the Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde, Arizona. My great grandparents lived in the small Arizona town and a day in the park was always something I looked forward to. Now with my own daughters growing up with a love for this park too, we were excited for a family day to meet the new Out of Africa babies. We were there the very first day all the babies were enjoying their new outdoor homes where guests can watch them play. The three lion cubs, one Bengal tiger cub and rescued cougar cub are adorable! With so many must try experiences in the park already, visiting the babies added to our family fun day.

Not long ago a friend we met during our many visits to San Diego moved to Arizona for an opportunity to work at the Out of Africa Wildlife Park. While we were already very fond of the park, we were especially excited to visit. The timing with the new Out of Africa babies and our visit was perfect. We took a short two hour road trip from the Phoenix area to Camp Verde and spent the day on a safari, watching Tiger Splash and learning about the new lion and tiger cubs.

We walked from the Tiger Splash arena to explore the park and visit the babies.

Bengal Tiger Cub

Sunrise, the Bengal tiger, was born October 29, 2017 in Missouri. She was in need of a permanent home and arrived at Out of Africa in January weighing only 13.5 pounds. She’s grown a lot since her arrival and now enjoys her field trips to the Tiger Splash arena where she gets to play in the pool with toys.

Cougar Cub

Sage is a 5 month old cougar cub. She was rescued in Cornville, Arizona where she was found orphaned. She had been visiting porches to eat cat food prior to discovering she was on her own. Out of Africa adopted Sage and is providing the proper care she needs to thrive.

Tiger Cubs

Zarah and Katar are 10 months old and were born just a week apart. Their permanent home is not in the same area as the younger lions and tiger. Just a short walk away you can see them playing together and enjoying the sun during their many daytime naps.

The babies require 24 hour care while they are young just like human babies. We learned they are bottle fed and some spend evenings at home with park staff until they grow older. 

 Bottle feeding baby lions at Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde, Arizona is the best job ever!

    • We’ve had so many up close learning opportunities with animals but this was the first time we spent so much time with cubs and their behaviorists. Such a great day!

  2. Oh my goodness! Of all the times I’ve visited Arizona (20+ times, perhaps?), I have never visited Out of Africa Wildlife Park! The cubs are too darn cute! I want to go see them!

    • Out of Africa does a great job with rescue and rehabilitation. They are certainly one of our favorite local wildlife parks because of the awesome things they do.

    • They sure are cute! That little tiger is so big already with giant paws but is still such a baby face. Seeing how clumsy they are right now definitely adds to their cuteness.

  3. I want to snuggle and cuddle with all of these little babies! They are simply adorable and I just know I wouldn’t be able to contain myself around them.
