We, the grandparents took our daughter, her 3 year old and her one year old, to the Lion on a Saturday morning. The distance from central Johannesburg was just manageable for the one year old. Parking was plentiful and close. Buying entrance tickets was a breeze and the cashier was very pleasant and helpful. The Park was immaculately clean and... More

An excellent park... We needed to do a cheetah interaction and so we chose to go to this place which was for R70. But it was mandatory to take the park safari guided tour as well for R195. But trust me it was all worth it. We also added the lion cub interaction for another R60. These are per person... More

This attraction is a 45minute drive from Johannesburg. It is a wonderful way to see Lions in a "natural "... all be it fenced off environment. They also offer cub and cheetah interactions. The restaurants are well priced with good service and there is plenty for children to do

I visited the Lion Park over the long weekend in April and really enjoyed it. It is a definite upgrade from the previous park, with more facilities such as restaurants, bigger curio shop and a kiddies play area. I also enjoyed the drive around the park and was impressed with our guide who was not only jovial but knew his... More

We had visitors from Abu Dhabi to stay over with a four year old daughter in tow. Obviously top of the "to do" list was to see some of S A's wild animals but with the youngster not really up to a trip to Pilansburg (and certainly not Kruger) it was off to the Lion Park for us. The park... More

The park offers visitors different packages. We did the guided lion and wild dog tour and the lion cub interaction. The hour long guided tour was informative and interesting and the lion cub interaction was a great experience. I highly recommend this place for a great day out.
