The Camp itself was limited to about 5 tents each tent can accomodate a family. Quite rustic. Showers had limited pressure. The park itself is an interactive zoo offering interaction with animals patting of cubs etcwhich can be a thrill till you learn about the plight of cubs once they grow up. Opportunity to feed a giraffe as well.

We stayed over on Fathers' day, just to get away from home (a whole 45 minutes' drive!) and experience something a bit different. We were pleasantly surprised by how nicely the tents were equipped, although it was a bit to cold for me to partake of the "outdoor-indoor" shower! However, having your own bathroom s great, especially if it has... More

My friend and I were in South Africa last February. I already had been here in November 2008. The Reason was a documentary about the lion man, which had seen. I was so thrilled, so I had to take my friend over here. In contrast to 2008, the tents have own bathrooms (with shower) now. The tents are equipped with... More

The accomodation rate is very reasonable as it can be upgraded to go on a day/night game drive for just an additional R100 which gives you R150 savings per game drive. The tent we got for which we paid for double occupancy has 1 double bed and 3 single beds! The bed and pillows are comfortable. The tent has huge... More

The best time to come to the park is early morning. We came at about 8:30 on Wednesday (February), and there were just a few people, so we had lots of time to take pictures with the giraffe and lion cubs, not being disturbed and waiting in a queue. It's life time unforgettible experience to touch and pet lion cubs,... More

I came here with my family for the whole day including the night. We loved the day and went on a night safari, but then a storm started. The bathroom was horrid, a rusty old shower and rank toilet were included.

If you didn't get a chance to see Lions in the wild in the parks, this is the place to do it. We wished that there had been more (or more accurate) information provided though. the staff were remarkably unhelpful and, at times, downright rude. The tent was spacious and well-equipped for the 4 of us. The outdoor private bathroom... More

Me and my boyfriend had a great time staying at the Lion Park! The tent is not a luxury tent, but did the job. Wear warm clothes in the tent during the winter season, since the tent is heated with only a fan heater. The stay included access to the lion cubs and self-drive. A great value! When we first...

When visiting the Lion Park you should realise that it is not one of the big game reserves South Africa is well known for, like the Kruger Park. If you want to see animals in their natural environment, drive approx. 4 hours east and visit the Kruger Park. That said... we loved our stay at the tented camp of the... More
