The gates of Malkia Park in Orechová potôň were opened for the first time on 3rd June 2016. We named the park after our first rescued lioness, Malkia. In Swahili this name means queen and because the lion is the king of the animals, loosely translated we can call Malkia park Royal Park. Animals that have found refuge here have mostly been born in captivity and therefore could not survive in the wild. Even though we unfortunately can't provide them with real freedom, we care for them with love, so that they can really feel like royalty here.
Many species of the felid family (lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, lynx, bobcats, cougars, cheetahs) have found their home here. We are especially excited about one most precious guest – a female snow leopard named Hima, the only one of her kind in Slovakia. In the park you can get to see gibbons, capuchin monkeys and lemurs, parrots, meerkats or turtles close up. You can pet the ungulates (zebras, camels, donkeys, sheep, goats, lamas), rabbits, kangaroos, silkies and peacocks, also feed these animals with food which we provide.
It is financially demanding to run the park, so we would be incredibly thankful for any form of help you may offer. Every cent of all financial contributions will be spent on food and veterinary care for our charges, caretakers' salaries and the upkeep of the enclosures.
Thank you for being Malkia Positive!
