I took my 6 and 4 year old nephews here during August. It was a better option than the Toronto Zoo as the trip was and hour shorter for us and they got to see the elephants taking their noon hour bath and play, stay in an air conditioned safari bus, boat ride, train ride, picnic,and splash pad. Thus, staying... More

My family are regular visitors to the African Lion Safari, and we've held season passes for the last three seasons. It's always an enjoyable day out and the staff are friendly and conscientious. Yes, it can get a bit pricey if you need to buy meals, etc, but unlike Canada's Wonderland, you can take your own refreshments if you choose.... More

My family visited African Lion Safari 2 weeks ago. Tickets for 2 adults are $70 plus a full tank of gas to drive back and forth from Toronto as it is very far from the highway. Everything was closed in the park, and everything costed extra. Elephant rides, pony rides, every place that served food, all closed. Swim center was... More

African lion in Hamlton is grest place to be in Ontario. Bit pricey but many activities. Staff at ticket counter not aware of mothers day promotion. If you plan to visit, better call before for any promotions. Safari is 90 min drive. You can see lions, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, rhino, americanas and many other animals during visit. Make sure to...

So long as you do as highly recommended.....driving thru the game reserves, keep windows UP and don't feed the already WELL -FED animals.....you will have AN amazing time! You are in the *cage* and the animals roam free.....great experience that everyone should take in at least once in their lifetime....kids will be fascinated by what they can see and hear!... More

Thought of spending 2 Hrs at this location but ended up spending 4 Hrs. Best part is watching Lions roaming free in their habitat. Loved the interaction with Ostrich, Zebra and Giraffe. Check the bird shows and the little red train. Our 3 yr old loved the whole trip.
