What a trip, well when else would you get to experience big cats so close up. A pleasant lunch followed by introductions to lion cubs & cheetahs then a tour of the new research facility - ok at first we weren't too keen on seeing big cats behind mesh but keep an open mind, the work underway is essential to...

Love, love, love! 5 of us stayed in one of the self catering houses for 1 night and it was amazing. The house was very spacious and clean. And the kitchen was nicely stocked for cooking in our room. You can hear the lions roaring in the evening and mornings. Such a unique experience! The staff was amazing - helpful,...

Great place where you can have the unique experience of walking with the lions which is amazing or holding, feeding a lion cub. Sleeping over even more special, to hear the lions roaring close by. Exceptionally delicious food at the cozy restaurant. Good place to take oversees visitors to, or a good family outing. This is really very special and...

We stayed for two nights in one of the self-catering cottages. Service was excellent. Interactions with the lions, tigers, cheetahs and hyenas is an experience we will never forget. WiFi was good. Swimming pool, cottage and facilities in general was top notch. Highly recommend.

We had heard about Ukutula from friends and it lived up to everything we had heard and so much more. The first thing that strikes you is how well maintained and tidy everything is and then to be greeted by extremely friendly and professional staff, you know its going to be good. Our guides were brilliant, they were extremely knowledgable...

Restaurant charges ridiculous prices for meals. No menu available and only had a choice between either steak or chicken. The kitchen/restaurant has to be notified hours in advance of your intention to have a meal. The bar does not fare much better. Disappointed to say the least.

I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay whilst in south africa. The staff made me feel like i was part of the family, incredibly helpful all the time and...

We arrived just in time for our interactive tour. Colin took around to see the lions, tigers, hyenas and cheetahs before ending with the lion cubs. He was very helpful and told us all about the conservation and research project. We went into the enclosure with the young cheetahs and enjoyed petting them. We then had a walk in the...

An outstanding facility recommended to us by knowledgeable locals during our trip, this turned out to be a real highlight. Exceedingly clean, great food, knowlegable and friendly staff-all come togeather to deliver a first class experience. Walks with adult lions in the open bush, to cuddles with the younger cubs.... it's hard to imagine a more personal experience with lions.
