Beautiful from start to finish! A combination of education, conservation and interaction that works brilliantly. From playtime with lion cubs to hands on with cheetah - although if you are intimidated by larger animals perhaps it's not for you! Great staff and very knowledgable too.

The attraction is approximately 1 hour away from Sun City. The interaction with animals is unforgettable. It´s important to pay attention to the safety instructions. Our teenagers enjoyed most the interaction with the cubs.

We visited a s a family group with ages ranging from mid twenties up. It was the first stop for my family who had not been to South Africa before and as a hands on and up close experience they were enthralled. The research facilities and close ties with South African Universities were impressive. The "Walking with lions" through the... More

This place is special. Not just the incredible experience of walking and interacting with cheetahs and lions - but many "above and beyond" staff approaches with visitors. We spent the night here in the upscale leopard chalet and enjoyed comfortable beds, nice linens, towels and a modern bathroom. Both of our meals were 5 star and the bar, dining area... More

From the moment we arrived we were immersed in animals. Meet the lion cubs and rub their backs then see the Mercats on lookout duty. Meet the rest of the cats big and small before walking with cheetahs as they eat. Amazing just sitting beside them. Move on to the lions themselves and marvel at their power and beauty. You... More

The venue is located in a remote place but really worth it. You can interact with young lions and visit the farm which hosts different type feline species. You can support genetic research while enjoying a unique moment with lions and cheetahs. The team is young and cheerful but yet knowledgeable. There is a nice bar if you want to... More

We had been to Kruger park but this was different experience, up close with lion cubs, cheetah and other cats. All the staff right from the man on the gate to the very last were very helpful and hospitable. A calm peaceful atmosphere and beautiful lodges. To walk with the lions was a new experience. A real highlight for our... More
