Due to COVID we could not pet the lion cubs, we did however enjoy the park. Our 4 year old and 1 year old were very interested and enjoyed riding in the safari bus. Our driver Nick was very helpful and an excellent navigator. We would recommend this tour if you want to get up close and personal with some of the animals at the park. The Lions came right up to the bus!

This was an amazing tour. Our guide, Pascal, was extremely knowledgeable and gave me and my two friends an excellent, private tour of the city of JoBurg. Highly recommend this tour!
