Time stood still..... needs an update!

It's more a zoo than a park, but still nice animals to see. The park itselfs needs an update, and staff could be more friendly. The tigers are special I guess?

This site is mainly a breeding area for lions to repopulate other parks. I have visited this park many times over the years and sadly it has declined in popularity. You used to be able to have experiences with the large cats but this has now gone. You are able to drive around the park and see giraffe and buck.... More

Maybe it's just me! I've never seen such a scraggly, sad place that feeds off tourists and guests with "lies" about what they are doing there! Such a place should be closed down and the sad animals put into better care! Never again!

Seeing blesbok, giraffe, wildebeest grazing as you drive through the park. The highlight being the cats, lions, tigers and to top it off a black leopard. My advice to someone wishing to visit is to call and enquirer what time they feed the lions. We arrived and had about 20 minutes to drive through the park to get to the... More

A self drive at Seaview lion park is a great way of spending the day with family or friends. We enjoyed the animals and the ocean view is just so beautiful...

Definitely an experience getting so close to the animals. Unfortunately when we went the park didn't have any baby lions to play with, Overall I think it's definitely worth a visit when you're in PE but it's not exactly an authentic safari experience. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get a nice close up view of lions, tigers and other... More

It was a pleasant experience. We enjoyed seeing the cats and other animals at the park. Regrettably there were no cubs

This is nothing but a Lion zoo now. If you like seeing Lions and Tigers in a zoo, that's the place for it. I went to this Park 4 years ago and its interesting point was that you could interact with the Lions, but now they don't have any interaction anymore. When I asked the guy in the restaurant at...

On our way back from Pumba reserve. We were told that this was a great stop off for a couple of hours before boarding our flight to Cape Town. We had been enthralled with Pumba and although the lions at Seaview were in Large cages it gave us a change to walk instead the Lions "DEN" although there are some... More

The park used to be lovely, but now everything is so small. There are hardly any animals to see and the cages that the Lions are in are terribly small. To top it off when they were fed you could smell that the meat was rotten
