Preparing for a 'tigerrific' arrival

Chessington prepares for the arrival of four Amur tigers

Wildlife presenter, Nick Baker, visits Chessington World of Adventures Resort to find out what it takes to make a home fit for the world’s biggest species of cat.

In the lead up to Tiger Rock and Land of the Tiger opening on Saturday May 5, Chessington is preparing for the arrival of four endangered Amur tigers, Olga, Tsar, Kalinka and Kyra.

Before the ‘roar-some foursome’ set paw on British soil from Sweden, Nick speaks to those involved in the meticulous planning and preparation for the tigers’ multi-million pound new home, which will feature an innovative enclosure with Europe’s first overhead trails.
