Overview

A once in a life time experience. Walk alongside Africa's most majestic predator. The "walking with lions" encounter is an opportunity to interact with young lions. The walks take approximately one hour to complete - depending on how fast the lions are prepared to amble - and a maximum of eight - ten guests can be hosted on each excursion.No leashes, No Collars, just a natural African Adventure.
