We decided to visit while on holiday and was astounded how nice it is. You really do getup close and personal with the animals. We went in to see the lion cubs and pet them.

Visited in July 2016 with family and friends for an unbelievable experience. One thing to note is check on the height and age restriction. The lions were not cubs on our visit but young females and all magnificent beautiful animals.
