Go "On Safari!" and get CLOSER than you ever imagined to over...

Go "On Safari!" and get CLOSER than you ever imagined to over 1,000 exotic birds and animals that roam free in seven large Game Reserves! Your full day of family adventure begins as you set out on a "trek" along 9km of Safari Trail in your own vehicle or aboard a guided, air-conditioned Safari Tour Bus. See a pride of majestic lions, graceful giraffe, a crash of rhino, and many more animals from around the world! After your "safari" through the Game Reserves, set out on a walking tour of the grounds and enjoy exciting bird and animal presentations featuring Parrot Paradise, Birds of Prey Flying Demonstration and Elephant Round-Up. Enjoy the daily Elephant Swim, Pets' Corner, "Nature boy" scenic railway, "African Queen" boat cruise, Discovery Centre and Jungle Playground Areas. Cool off in the newly-expanded Misumu Bay Wet Play interactive water adventure zone where kids can stroll through sprinklers, spouts and stream jets, trek under rain trees and tumble buckets, and interact with gadgets, gizmos and geysers! Open daily from May 7 to October 10, 2016

An excellent one for a day out with family especially to introduce younger children to the bigger animals on the food chain, from a distance. If you enjoy photography, it's your place to capture your favorite animals in their natural moods. Lion Safari has some great shows to do with birds of prey, elephants !,and some exquisite interactive birds from... More

Every time I visit the African Lion Safari, I am amazed at the changes made to the park and am quite pleased with their progress! As I walk around viewing the Birds and Animals that aren't included in the Tours, they seem to pay me more attention than any one else. At the Elephant Exibbit, they were all in the... More

My family and I love it so much that we just had to go again. The only thing I would change is taking away the elephant rides. That breaks my heart.

Took the family here, the kids are 6 and 8 and we all loved it. You can see the animals roaming around and no in small cages. You can take a bus and they explain everything to you. You can also take your car for free and there is a monkey bypass if you don't want to have something ripped... More

Wonderful experience, kids love it. The animals have large areas to roam. The shows are fun and educational and the water park is the icing on the cake.
