This place was lovely and quiet, well kept but quite small. The Lions are as they would be in a Zoo in the UK, there is a walkway over other animals which I thought was really good. The view is spectacular at the top. Worth and visit and not expensive.

Very close to the city. Roads are good. We saw zebras , lions , various types of buck. The highlight was going there during feeding time for lions at noon.The lions are well taken care of and can view them at close range.

We have been three times and love it every time. The park is relatively small but there are plenty of animals in their natural habitat. The big cats are in enclosures though but are still well looked after. The best thing is the view from outside the restaurant. Amazing views of the sea and is worth every penny. The cost... More

The game reserve is quite small. The lion area is a zoo. Just so you know. The view from the top is quite cool. In general, I would recommend to go to the cheaper Kragga Kamma game reserve close by!

It has some spectacular animals however it is a shame how they are all in small enclosures! I don't think it is anything special and wouldn't go out of my way to visit again.

Apart from a few lions locked up and some zebra and giraffe wondering around, there was not much else to see. This is a far cry from how great this place used to be. Very very sad. I won't be going back.

I was here three years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Spent hours. This time, however, I found it run down. The walkways need a lot of maintenance. They sway back and forth as you walk and we found it unnerving. Very few animals to see. The 4 lions in the large enclosure had no shade on a 90 degree day... More

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

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?

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!
