Like many Buffalonians, we have been following this cuddly pair’s story for weeks via social media. That’s why we are especially excited to share this piece of news regarding the dynamic duo. 

The Buffalo Zoo’s new African lion cubs officially made their public debut on May 20. So yes, that means you can finally visit them in person.

The Zoo hosted a naming contest last month to help name these ferocious fur balls. The winning boy name was voted in as Khari, and the winning girl name, Zahra. The contest raised nearly $4,000 to support the Buffalo Zoo and Associate of Zoos and Aquariums Lion SAFE Program to aid in African lion conservation. Cool, right?

If you haven’t had the chance to meet Khari and Zahra, it’s time to plan a visit to the Buffalo Zoo. Rumor has it these cubs are growing fast and even cuter in real life.

You can visit Khari and Zahra daily! The Zoo recommends coming earlier in the day between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. for the best chance to see them.

Visibility is not guaranteed since the cubs and their mom are still becoming familiar with their outdoor habitat. There are two viewing areas – one indoors and the other outdoors.

The Buffalo Zoo is open daily rain or shine from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Everyone wants to see these cubs, so reservations are currently required. This means member or not, you’ll need to make sure to reserve tickets online before visiting. 

If you are fully vaccinated, you can explore the outdoor exhibits at the  Zoo without a mask. However, all guests are still asked to wear a mask indoors and follow social distancing guidelines.
