Found it to be very confusing and not well put together, it's expensive for what you get. Water in animals cages looked old, dirty and disgusting.

So the Game Park is not to be blamed for the weather, cold and raining, typical Easter Weekend! The drive to the park is quick, just 10 minutes out of town and the park itself is lovely, with the rains a bit greener than I was expecting The Lions and Tigers (yes Tigers) are fenced in enclosures: this is not...

the game park has a lot of lions, tigers, and many big cats. They are caged in wide areas. You will see them behind wires. No direct contact or risky encounters.

We took friends from overseas there, to show them the white lions. The number of lions at the park have decreased dramatically since our last visit, and while our guests enjoyed the outing, we as locals left a little disappointed. There are many other animals to see other than the lions, and for overseas guests still probably worth the trip.... More

Enjoyed the nature and to look out for the lions. Exciting and at times risky. Keep your distance. Listen and read the pamphlets.

Went out to see the lions at seaveiw. A great adventure. Sometimes a little to close for comfort and scary to walk around with only a fence to divide you from them.
