Featuring four prides of lions of various ages, Lion Park also boasts a number of rhino as well as other herbivores. The lions are enclosed in a high-security area while the greater park area is given over to the other animals. For the adventurous, photographs with lion cubs are permitted under supervision. A restaurant and curio shop is situated in shady surrounds. Picnic facilities are also available. These areas are clearly demarcated and nature conservation officers are always on hand.
No one tells you where that steady flow of pritty little lioncubs go when they get too big for tourists to play with. They end up in the Canned Hunting trade. Shoved into a small camp to be shot by a super rich hunter, later to be stuffed as a trophy!
Wow great work duping the dum tourists out of their money guys!
This place is fantastic. We had a great time getting up close to the animals. It's not everyday you get to play with Lion cubs and feed a Giraffe.
The place is very clean with friendly staff and good facilities.
A MUST when visiting South Africa
i think it is shamefull that the playing with cubs is permitted. Where are the cubs mothers and why were they taken from their mothers? What will happen to these cubs once they grow to big for humas to interact with? Do you honstly believe that those cubs get any enjoyment out of being pawed by people all day everyday
The set up is amazing for a start... You wind your way through a few large enclosures admiring the awesome prides of lions relaxing under the hot African skies, ending up at an oasis of a place where you can be refreshed with an ice cold beer or some cold-drinks and snacks for the kids... Then for the most highlighting experience of all... A few minutes face to face with the lion cubs themselves. Don't be fooled though, they're not soft and cuddly as you'd imagine, in fact they're pretty smelly little guys(make sure you have some wet-wipes tucked away for after...) but an altogether incredible day out. The youngsters will love it. I did.
