Finally getting around to viewing this fantastic experience. Visited these guys in 2017. From the get go, very professional. It is clear that the animals are well taken care of and love their handlers. This was demonstrated by my guide, who walked up to an...More

A fabulous place with calm nature. You can enjoy with the experience team with all safety while moving with wild animals. Refreshments are free when you are tired. The animals are well tamed and well behaved with the human beings.

Did the elephant back ride through the bush. They have other interesting activities, also. Very informative, interesting, and interactive with the animals and guides. Only reason not a 5 is I had hoped ride potion was longer. Loved it though.

To hear a cheetah purr in your ear takes your breath away. To run your hand down the back of a lioness or touch the hair on a male lion’s mane is something that would never happen anywhere else in the world, and once you...More
