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.

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

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.
