you will never get this close again, be warned glasses have to be taken off to do the walk, so if you are as blind as a bat without them you wont be able to do it.

Fun and thrilling experience which you should not miss. You get an opportunity to touch and experience how it feels to be so close to beautiful wild cats.

Parth B we appreciate your feedback and we are sorry you did not enjoy your walk with our younger lions however, walks are conducted with both our younger and older lions throughout the day. The minimum height requirement is there for your safety.
