A once in a life time experience. Walk alongside Africa's most majestic predator. The "walking with lions" encounter is an opportunity to interact with young lions. The walks take approximately one hour to complete - depending on how fast the lions are prepared to amble - and a maximum of eight - ten guests can be hosted on each excursion.No leashes, No Collars, just a natural African Adventure.

The sun was shining, there was no wind and all was in place. The guides were amazing and at no time did I feel in any danger. These cats are well cared for, and at no time did I think or see these animals in distress.

I have had the pleasure of walking with this wonderful animals and thanks to a great guide that just completely summed up the experience. To have been so close to them is amazing. You always get to see them on the television out in the wild and to have been able to walk next to them is an experience that... More

Having been on an excellent game drive at Botlioskorp, we decided to go on the one hour walk with two lions at their sister facility. What a great experience !! As Nike tell us - 'Just do it'

To think at home we take our 3 dogs on leads to keep them at bay, here we walked with 2 lions no restraints of any sort and a few rangers with bamboo sticks to control them. We... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to South Africa. We did the lion walk with 2 beautiful female lions. We had a hard time finding the place and arrived late. They were very kind and put us in for a walk just a little later. They served us coffee and hot chocolate while we waited. Lucky for... More

I did enjoy time spent with the Lions, they are such amazing creatures. The walk itself is very staged as are the photo opportunities with the lions, this is both good and bad. I got some great photos, but would have preferred it was a little more natural and the cats were able to have more freedom. I assume it... More

What a fantastic experience being able to be so close to African Lions. The thrill of the experience is wonderful but you still completely aware that these are wild lions so there is this sense of respect and almost a feeling of being very low on the food chain :-) The photo opportunities were plenty and the guide was extremely...

I have always loved lions, must be because I am a Leo :-), so when my husband found this site before we left for our trip back to SA we were beyond excited. We were over for a family wedding in Knysna so just an hour away. There were 7 of us and had booked the slot at 4pm. We... More

Someone below asks the question at what cost? The answer is simple these lions would be sold to parks where people hunt them, not a great proposition for the lion! Here they have to perform to a certain extent, yes they are rewarded with meat, but this is to show how they climb trees, how their eyes work in poor... More
