A once in a life time experience. Walk alongside Africa's most majestic predator. The "walking with lions" encounter is an opportunity to interact with young lions. The walks take approximately one hour to complete - depending on how fast the lions are prepared to amble - and a maximum of eight - ten guests can be hosted on each excursion.No leashes, No Collars, just a natural African Adventure.

You may criticize keeping lions for tourists, but we did not have the impression of tortured animals when there. We even lions playing with their guides.

Real wild experience with Lions , walking with 2 lions for 45 minutes in Bush is amazing experience and on tour guides especially IMMANUEL and his team were amazing. a viewing deck offers spectacular view and a cozy sofa alongside fire place sipping a cup of coffee is amazing.

Just the most amazing experience walking with lions. We were extremely lucky to be the only two visitors for this walk with Rambo and Gina, two two year old lion siblings. With our guide and the minders we enjoyed an hour walking in the company of these stunning beasts. Fantastic memory.
