Siberian tiger brothers, Rock and Louie who were living at Sunway Lagoon made their own ‘Balik Kampung’ journey after a decade of being away from their hometown.
They were reunited with their family as well as, Zulkafli Bin Shamsudin, the very zookeeper at Lost World Of Tambun that delivered them and took care of them when they were cubs.
The brothers were returned to the Lost World Tiger Valley, their birthplace – a self-contained wonderland cocooned by lush tropical jungle, trees for them to climb on and a river for them to swim in akin to their natural habitat – a paradise away from the hustle and bustle of the city where they had lived at in Sunway Lagoon.
You can see and meet this iconic pair through the tiger feeding shows at the Lost World Tiger Valley, and the valley’s educational program, where visitors can get up close and personal with the exquisite tigers.
“Sunway Lagoon will miss both Rock and Louie as it has been a pleasure having both of them with us. Over the years, the two have secured a special place in our hearts. Nevertheless, I know that Lost World Of Tambun is excited to welcome them back; it will be a nostalgic moment for the locals there,” said Calvin Ho, Senior General manager of Sunway Theme Parks.
