Overview

A once in a life time experience. Walk alongside Africa's most majestic predator. The "walking with lions" encounter is an opportunity to interact with young lions. The walks take approximately one hour to complete - depending on how fast the lions are prepared to amble - and a maximum of eight - ten guests can be hosted on each excursion.No leashes, No Collars, just a natural African Adventure.

The cost is around ZAR 710 per person for a 45mins walk. You will be woah by the distance you can keep to the lioness. But then when we check with them how big is the group size we were told it’s 6-8 and maximum...More

When does one have the opportunity to take a stroll with two beautiful lions, in the open, just next to you. It is like taking your dog for a walk. Quite incredible......
