Our tour guide, Innocent, was excellent and we'd booked package one given we had kids and weren't really sure what to expect.

Me and my husband never expected to be so closed to the Lions and the cheetahs. We went inside of the cage and touch them.It was amazing the best and scariest experience ever. The guide is very trained(Inocent was our guide he is awesome) you fell very secure with the animals. Definitely coming back.

The Akwaaba Predator park is the place to go if you want to interact with different cats. Depending on the package you choose there are options to cuddle with cubs, enter lion and cheetah enclosures or just partake in a walk with a guide teaching you about each predator. An extra bonus is the restaurant and gift shop on site...
