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.

There's nothing between you and the lions apart from the watchful eyes of 4 "guards" and the tour guide. it's a fascinating visit, you learn a lot about lions and come back with great photographs which the tour guide takes of you with the lions with your phone. The walk is very easy and takes about 1hour. You really show... More

We really enjoyed this experience. The Lion was majestic and the Lioness had a few growls at him which added to the reality. The talk was interesting and the whole experience highly recommended. You will never be this close to Lions anywhere and to walk around with them was such an amazing feeling.

I was very nervous prior to doing this for safety reasons but as soon as i arrived i felt safe with the great guide and the other rangers who are always surrounding the lions. It's a great experience to learn about lions and to see them walking and understand their true size and behaviour. Definitely not something you get the... More

I truly wish id never done this activity.I am aware my review is going to be in the minority but can only voice my personal opinion and do so regardless of whatever others will do to convince me otherwise. We set off on the walk and slowly ambled behind the beautiful creatures until we came to a point ( a... 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, so the walk can then not be guarantied as safe. So no sedation at all.... More

Booked on internet then turned up early and were given a private walk with the lions! Quite a moving experience and something I would recommend! The cats were amazing, still very natural but comfortable with humans! Our tour guide Mac was a mine of information and kept us informed on the 1 hour walk with the cats! We really enjoyed... More

What an awesome experience this was. I was a little bit nervous at first when I was preparing for the walk. I eventually got more comfortable and had a great time.

Good organization, very nice staff… and what can I say about the animals. Wonderful!!! About the ethics… The animals do their job, but I did not fell they were unhappy. I think the real problem are the illegal organizations, not this one.

Me and my boyfriend had a wonderful experience with the lions. We were the only tourists during the 13.00 tour what gave us a special feeling. We could ask our tour guide, Emmanuel, anything about the lions, he knew a lot about the animals that he works with. He also made a lot of pictures of us with the lions,... More
