With the awe inspiring spectacle of a star-laden night sky above you, and the sounds of Africa's nocturnal creatures surrounding you, we will drive you out into our carefully constructed pre-release training area - 900 acres of pristine African wildnerness, to follow our pride of lions as they play, meander and hopefully search for game, stalk, chase and perhaps even make a kill.
