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.

This is the real deal and may be as close to wild lions as you may ever get. After visiting Zorgfontein "Catwalk" registration and signing the mandatory indemnity form (I imagine lawyers will hate this), we were introduced to our guide. He gave us instructions...More
