“Close encounters guaranteed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

We enjoyed our visit to Seaview Lion Park, you are able to see the lions & tigers close up as well the giraffes & other animals.
The staff & volunteers were really helpful & spoke to us about the animals we were looking at. Everyone was happy & welcoming.
We also did the wild encounters with the cubs etc & loved it, it was excellent to be able to get so close to animals, the staff & volunteers that organised it made you feel safe & were very professional about their approach.

“Lazy Lions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I am surprised to read the review by imtrigirl - she obviously hit a bad day ! We have visited this venue on a few occasions - you can drive through the one lion enclosure and sure, the lions are lazy, but sometimes inquisitive enough that they jump up against your car, which is what happened to us once, with the lion peering through the back window at my grandchild ! Presumably, it is best to visit before feeding time. The young cubs are adorable, but it is expensive to be allowed to enter their enclosure for a play session. I am not sure which month we last visited, have stated September as a wild guess.

“Skip It!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

What a waste of time and cab fare! Arriving, there wasn't even anyone to direct me what to do. So I just walked around "watching" sleeping lions in big cages. I could see this at a zoo. Don't even bother going! Super waste of time!

“Cuddle the lion, and the tiger too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

The Seaview Lion Park is a sanctuary for lions and tigers, surrounded by a park with Giraffes and different sort of deer. You enter by car, but coming around a corner, our trip was soon interrupted by a group of 5 giraffes eating their trees and blocking the road. It gave us good 15 minutes to admire these huge animals right in front of us. Then we reached the area where they have very large enclosures for lions and tigers. Finally we arrived at the main building with a restaurant and several different enclosures where they have tiger and lion cubs. If you want, you can get in there to get in close encounter with these animals, under surveillance of a game ranger. We chose the enclosure with a male lion and a female white tiger, both one year old. Probably the last chance to pet these animals before they become adults. This park is highly recommendable for anybody, be it family, group or single persons, who want to directly interact with these wonderful animals. A great day trip from PE.
