Depending on the package you choose there are options to cuddle with cubs, enter lion and cheetah enclosures or just partake in a walk with a guide teaching you about each predator. An extra bonus is the restaurant and gift shop on site... More

But here you are able to have a close encounter. Unforgettable to cuddle a cheetah, striped hyena and lion cubs. Mr Cajee went out of his way to... More

The whole visit with the predators was really enjoyable. Particularly the second part of the visit, where we have the opportunity to be with the animals and touch them. In the end, the little lions interation was the "icing on the cake". Great value, great experience.
