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.

Your tour guide will tell you much about those big cats and you may ask lots of questions. They have a profound knowledge. Also you can take beautiful pictures with you and enjoy the... More

Just the most amazing experience walking with lions. We were extremely lucky to be the only two visitors for this walk with Rambo and Gina, two two year old lion siblings. With our guide and the minders we enjoyed an hour walking in the company of these stunning beasts. Fantastic memory.

My husband and I who is both nature lovers went to walk the lions and what a fantastic experience this was.

Not to be missed! Wonderful one hour experience. Knowledgeable guides, it felt all very safe and the animals did not appear to be stressed or bothered at all.
