LionsRock is a wonderful initiative by FourPaws where previously abused and mistreated big cats are rescued from international zoos, circuses and private owners. The game drive is informative and we were spoiled with some gorgeous lions and tigers that made their appearance.

What a truly inspiring visit. This really changes my whole perspective on what animal rescue is all about. My only regret is that we did not stay overnight. The rates are very reasonable and are real value for money

Response from Dave C | Reviewed this property |
Lion Rock rates depend on the time of year. The ideal rate is obtained by a stay at the lodge, but you can book a 90 minute tour as a day visitor. It is best to visit their website for rates and opening times
