We did the full package which included an elephant ride, lion walk, cheetah walk and caracal interaction. Our favourite bit was definitely the cheetah walk. The cheetahs seem to love interacting with people and they started purring as soon as we got close to them. They are much more interractive than the lions or elephants. I would definitely do this again if I went back to Livingstone.

Was blessed to go with good friends. Walked cheetahs, walked with lions. They even supplied walking sticks. Most gracious & knowledgable staff. Beautiful items for purchase to remember your experience, like it could ever be forgotten!

This place is very legit. A few friends and I were recommended this place from an international volunteer here. We sat down and the dude answered all our questions and even explained what their organization was about. After that, we paid our 600,000 Zambian Kuatcha to walk with the Lions. We got to walk with 2 out of a pride of 4. The guides were extremely nice and did a great job taking pictures and everything. They were nice and friendly to the lions and did a great job instructing us as well. Never for a second did I feel unsafe. I would definitely recommend this place if you want some personal experiences with animals! AWESOME!

We did the morning walk with the cheetahs and had the male lead us around. Beautiful animals. We were happy to learn they are part of a breeding program to reintroduce cheetahs to the wild in Zambia. Unfortunatley we did not have time to partake in the encounters offered by Mukuni.

This is an amazing experience!!! I highly recommend this.. it will allow you to see lions and cheetahs in a new light.. and would want to protect them too!

It is pricey though.. I think it's too much.. USD 170 for both lion and cheetah walks..
