Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

Guests are collected from their hotel and are transported to our lion walk site approx 16km for the town center. On arrival guests are met by the guides and are given a safety briefing. Once done you will meet the lions in the bush and begin the walk. The walk lasts approx 1 hour with the lions. Here our guides will explain about our conservation program and the plight of the lion population. After the walk depending on which time slot guests will have a full English breakfast for the AM slot or drinks and snacks for the MM and PM walks. Once done you will proceed to the lion feed hide where you will watch the fast paced adrenaline feast of beasts. Here you will watch as our full grown male lions come running down towards you to get their meat. By doing both the lion walk and the feed, it will give guests the opportunity to see both sides to this magnificent animal.

Thank you benkH1317YS for your review. You are part of a large group of people that are not aware of the current lion population decline and thats why our work is so important as it gets the word out there. We are glad you were able to experience it and happy that you enjoyed it. Thanks so much for your kind words and support.

At first, we were a bit hesitant booking this tour, we read many reviews about how conservation agencies were just scam operations and were told not to participate in any kinds of offered tour, as it just increases public interests. So, we actually did research before we

It was a great experience - you first learn about the team, the sites and their objectives - and where the lion walks come in (in terms of fund raising for the rescue side of the conservation). The walks themselves are great - lots and lots of photo opportunities and there is

This experience was amazing. We chose to do the Lion Walk early in the morning, which meant that we missed breakfast before we were picked up from the hotel. We didn't realise that breakfast was included and after walking with the lions, there was a full breakfast laid on! The

Adult lions are better. Young loins or baby lions are too naughty and not powerful enough. But thanks a lot.
