Overview

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.

There's nothing between you and the lions apart from the watchful eyes of 4 "guards" and the tour guide. it's a fascinating visit, you learn a lot about lions and come back with great photographs which the tour guide takes of you with the lions...More

Dear Sir/Madam, The fact is that our lions are not sedated or drugged at all during tourism activities. Importantly, it is very dangerous for the lions health and also because the natural behavior of the animal can then not be correctly interpreted by its handlers,...More
