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.

Having seen lions from the safety of a jeep, getting to walk with (well behind really) them was unmissable. It was a lovely experience to be able to stroll along behind them and ask questions of the knowledgeable guide. The lions seemed well trained -...More

Dear Sir/Madam, The fact is that our lions are not sedated or drugged at all during tourism activities. Importantly, it is very dangerous for the lions health and also because the natural behavior of the animal can then not be correctly interpreted by its handlers,...More
