What a wonderful place for rescued lions & tigers, they are so well looked after as the guide told us a retirement home for lions, reading their stories is so sad thank goodness they were rescued and brought to this wonderful sanctuary. I am so glad we had the chance to visit the lion park it was so worth it.
As other people have mentioned this is a true sanctuary for rescued domestic lions. All the lions (and a couple of tigers) have been rescued from zoos or private collectors from across the globe. All the animals are provided with a decent sized enclosure which features natural habitat (grass. trees etc). You have to remember lions are essentially nocturnal animals... 更多
No signage that there is an extra entrance for wheelchairs and children strollers, which will help people not to turn around. A bit expensive if you earn Rand, but it all goes to a very good cause. All the lions at this park have a very sad story, but very lucky ending. Well maintained and friendly staff. Make sure to... 更多
At the lion park they say they have 32 lions and 2 tigers but the weather was so hot that we saw only 11 of them and that too all under the shade of trees far away from sight. If you plan to visit the lion park, try to visit before 4PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays which is when... 更多
The Lion Park close to Cape Town is in my opinion an absolute must visit for everyone, local or tourists. The park is doing a fantastic job in rehabilitating a number of animals (mostly lions), and the staff is so passionate and enthusiastic about their work that the educational side comes automatically when just chatting with them. The park is... 更多
Really emotional place. It definitely worth a visit! The staff was really nice, volunteers for most of them. They are really taking care of lions and tigers with their heart. Thank you!
We visited here during the school holidays (1st Week of October 2016) and it was an awesome visit. They have 37 lions (including 2 tigers) which are very well taken care of and are clearly view able. We saw all the lions they had and stayed until feeding time (4pm). It is an inspiring place, although very sad to hear... 更多
I went there with my kids and there were absolutely no lions or tigers. All I had to hear all the time was the Lions are asleep instead of feeding them or telling me when to visit on the days that the Lions are fed so I could actually see them as I booked well in advance. so I couldn't... 更多
We visited at 2pm on a Monday and stayed 3 hours. They feed the 32 lions and two Tigers every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4pm and you can follow the feeding truck around and see them being fed. This park cares for lions that were ill treated by zoos, circuses and individuals and each has a highly poignant story... 更多
We had a very nice tour of the place, and it is nice to see animals that have such sad stories being taken care of so lovingly. The only problem was that we arrived in the early afternoon, and all the lions were sound asleep! We still learned about the individual lions and enjoyed our tour, but seeing a little... 更多
