Fabulous! Where else can you walk and play with lions? If you're an animal lover, you will absolutely love the time spent! Worth every penny!

Being a solo traveler I was the only one on my tour. I was treated like a star. Both Cubs were well behaved where else can you walk with the lions ? The handlers seem to take good care of Cubs. Awesome experience.
