The lions and baboons have a new place to call home at the Knoxville Zoo.
The Valley of the Kings exhibit features two natural habitats that house African lions and Hamadryas baboons.
The $1.7 million dollar exhibit spans over an acre and includes a 6000 square food building with a wing for each species.
There's an indoor courtyard and also viewing areas that give visitors closer views of the animals, where they can even watch training sessions with staff members.
"It is just a fabulous exhibit and visitors can see all the way around. They can get up close to about two thirds of the exhibit so wherever the animal is it is not too far away," says zoo keeper Allison England.
The Valley of the Kings exhibit officially opens Saturday.
