We where slightly disappointed with the safari adventure. The park only had 1 bus doing the safari adventure so we had to wait between 30-40 minutes as we could not all fit on the bus. There where some wilder beasts but as soon as we started to get close they ran off so no real photo opportunity there. The rhinos... More

Visited in July 2016 with family and friends for an unbelievable experience. One thing to note is check on the height and age restriction. The lions were not cubs on our visit but young females and all magnificent beautiful animals. Definitely not sedated as they all darted across to the adjoining pen where young males roared for attention, the females... More

This was an ambition achieved. A fantastic experience. The guides were very good and explained fully how we should behave before we started the walk. No way are these Lions sedated, they were alert, active well trained animals. we walked with 2 x 2year olds and 2x 6month old cubs A wonderful experience with fantastic photos and a video.

Initially thought the lions would be sedated and we would be just seating close to it. But when we actually visited didn't think they were sedated but well fed hence they were silent. Instructions were to stick with the group and we also got our own selfie time with the lions under the guides instructions. Worth a visit for sure
