Not worth the drive. Two poor white lions in a too small enclosure. The place is littered with old trucks and wrecks of cars. The only positive thing I can say about the place it that the animals looked healthy.

After a fairly long drive from Lusaka, we arrived at this unusual Game Ranch. Not much to see but the white lions are worth the trip. Although they are not caged, they are in a fairly small area for such majestic animals. However, they looked...More

While the lions are very impressive (especially the huge white one), it is a bit sad to see them in such small cages. If you're into that sort of thing, then it's definitely worth a visit!

I only went there for the lions. They're so big and playful, considering they are only 4 years old. The ranch also has a good number of Zebra, Antelope, and Buffalo. Nice place.

After reading some many good reviews in Trip Advisor we took the car and went for a Sunday pic nic. Unfortunately the place was not what we expected given the positive reviews. Dirty, grotty, with no character. A sort of messy place in the dust....More

If I remember correctly we paid K20.00 per person, just to look at two caged white lions.
