I have been living in Maputo with my family who are diplomats for the last 3 years. We have visitied many Safari Parks in Southern Africa and met and became friends with rangers and the so called "conservationists". I obviously can't say that I saw with my own eyes the animals in Lion and Safari Park being mistreated but if you know a few basic things about the wildlife you would understand that human interaction with cubs is obviously not a good thing for the animal. Nor is enclosing lions in such small areas of land to make sure that the visitors will have the chance to see them.
If your priority is to see lions from very close without having to search for them, then yes this is the place to go. If your priority is to see animals in their natural habitat, this definitely isn't the right place to go.
