Because of the intense heat, the lions were sleeping, so the other animals were partying. I could see the hyenas laughing out loud, meerkats took sunbathing, zebras and wildebeests danced frantically, the panther posed happily in all the photos taken by visitors, the leopard leaded...More

The building facilities for visitors were very good, modern and clean and the food was average. However, the fees charged to enter the animal enclosures, or feed the giraffe, or inter act with the lion cubs were expensive. As it is relatively close to JHB/Pretoria,...More

The game drive offered good value for money. We enjoyed the landscape as well as the variety of animals on display. A fair substitute for a tourist who hasn't got time to go to the Kruger National Park.

More and more people are becoming aware of the fact that animals are not for our entertainment. My question is are the lion cubs taken away from their mothers and kept here to entertain visitors? Are they allowed into the wild once they grow? I have been to the park and enjoyed the experience but now years later I'm left to wonder if I was doing the right thing. Please enlighten me.

I am wanting to book a game drive with the management directly for sep 2017..however, I am being asked my credit card details with CVV for the booking...which I am not very comfortable sharing. Is there no other mode of payment or a direct online payment gateway where I can proceed for the payment ?
