A Fun Day for Young Family

My family and I enjoyed our day at African Lion Safari and appreciated the variety of animals and activities that it offered. Seeing the animals in the safari tour up close was really amazing and provides a great opportunity for young children that you can't offer at other zoos. I would... read more

Great place to visit with the kids and grandparents. Both my 7, 11, 65 and 62 yrs old enjoyed seeing the animals and we drove around in our car. The the 7 yr old enjoyed the water activities. The 11 yr old not so much. The bird shows were great. Do the safari early as possible or as late as... More

There are a number of dinning places in the park, but we liked Mombasa Market Restaurant as it had a variety of snacks like burgers, pizza, salads amongst other things. There is a licensed bar too. Value for money.

But due to unavoidable reasons couldn't visit, so i requested the extension, it was agreed. Contacted this year so i can use them this summer, I have been bluntly refused to use those tickets i paid for. I... More

My advise , take the safari bus as you will get better views through their large windows. you can also move from left to right seat if the bus is not so crowded. Thee buses are available every 15 minutes, so there are lots of vacant seats.

Prepare for an outing like NO other! Enjoy the animals up close and personal....either in your own vehicle (Keep the windows UP) or enjoy the narration and air-conditioned tram thru the reserves! Take in bird and elephant shows! And enjoy the water park and all the sites and sounds!

This is a great place to spend the entire day with the entire family. Lots to see and do, the main attraction being the safari. Their are playgrounds and a splash pad in the summer. It is a long day and maybe not so enjoyable for the very young (under 2 years old) in my opinion but a memorable experience... More
