this park offers wonderful scenery as you walk around the native bush with the bonus of fab animals who entertain as they go about their daily lives. loved the lions sun baking but the highlight was the interaction with the keas and the cheeky tui

I'm not sure about now, but one of the times when we were there, they did and they were just gorgeous...if you especially want to see lion cubs then it may pay to ring and find out....
