Definitely a nice hour spent in the park, including the self drive and the playing with the lion cubs, but not worth the price of the entrance ticket. For a third of the price you can do a full day game drive in any reserve...More

I really enjoyed the Park, lots of interesting animals to see not only lions. A fun day out. The Lions were beautiful and easy to see. The park is well kept and the restaurant and shop adequate. For Tourists inexpensive, for a SA family exoensive.
