I gave four stars only because you get a chance to touch the cheetah and lion cubs. Else it's an underwhelming place to visit. Remember it's a reserve and not an open park, the animals can be seen only where they are given food and...More

I would recommend the Lion and Rhino Park. There are more animals and more space. The Lion Park is not far away. If you have the time, you could do both. You only need about 1 - 2 hours max for the Lion Park. You'll get to... More

I want to know the background of this... Is it cruel? Are the animals drugged or later in their lives are they killed because they are too tame to live in the wild? Want to visit this month but don't want to support any such thing

Absolutely not!!! The animals are wild. The only animals you might see that seem tame are those that have been saved. They are still wild.
