The staff & volunteers were really helpful & spoke to us about the animals we were looking at. Everyone was happy & welcoming. We also did the wild encounters with the cubs etc &... More

I am surprised to read the review by imtrigirl - she obviously hit a bad day ! We have visited this venue on a few occasions - you can drive through the one lion enclosure and sure, the lions are lazy, but sometimes inquisitive enough that they jump up against your car, which is what happened to us once, with...

What a waste of time and cab fare! Arriving, there wasn't even anyone to direct me what to do. So I just walked around "watching" sleeping lions in big cages. I could see this at a zoo. Don't even bother going! Super waste of time!

The Seaview Lion Park is a sanctuary for lions and tigers, surrounded by a park with Giraffes and different sort of deer. You enter by car, but coming around a corner, our trip was soon interrupted by a group of 5 giraffes eating their trees and blocking the road. It gave us good 15 minutes to admire these huge animals... More

We recently holidayed in Port Elizabeth and after having debated what to do, we thought it may be nice to take the children to the park. We saw plenty of young giraffes and some buck and then parked our vehicles to the enclosure where the tiger is kept and where the lions are. Thereafter we thought we would have a... More

I return to SA every 3 years and each time I bring my family back to good old Port Elizabeth (bod of my favourite cities). We visit the park every time we come back to PE. I was somewhat dismayed to see the astronomical increase in gate fees and then the one on one animal interaction fees! Outrageous- R50 suddenly... More

The park starts with a game drive through giraffe and other bok. Then you can park and walk through the predator camp. Then into the restaurant area where you can walk a boardwalk through the interaction area. You can purchase different interactions with tiger cubs, lion cubs, and caracal. Many other reviews complain about small cage sizes. Cage sizes are... More

Its a zoo, no one explain why the animals are there, what are the goal of the place.. terrible. you can take pictures with baby animals, but each one has different price, I felt like buying clothes... The only good things is there you can see a lot of giraffes near the parking area.
