Not much to see. The so called guide was to busy taking photos for you to buy than tell us anything. Saw the back of a rhino some impala a few others that they did not say what they were.

Dear Annetta O

Thank you for your response however it is not on the correct TripAdvisor page. This page is dedicated to the Big Cat activities not the Safari with the African Plains game, that belongs to Casela World of Adventures.

Thank you and happy travels

We came on the hottest day of the entire trip. Blistering sun, dry hot temperature. LOTS OF WALKING so bring solid walking shoes. The path to the lion walk is very far. The lions were very lazy this day which was a good thing. You were able to sit down and pet the lions, including the white ones (depending on temperament) The guides were very relaxed and made us feel safe. Lots of photos were taken, I was able to barter the cost of the photo package (be aware that not many are posed and they just snap candids)

My friend and I were thinking of cancelling the trip at the last moment as we were in fear of lions. In fact they appeared to be very nice, no any aggression. We could touch them as many times as we wished. The most important- the animals looked very healthy, not under drugs or sedatives, well taken care of. After the lion walk we saw around 17 other lions in 2 huge cages who were playing together and obviously enjoyed their time in the park. Highly recommend lion walk to others.

My daughter got married in Mauritius and whist we were there we took the opportunity to visit this fantastic park. There were 6 of us in total and we did the ‘walking with lions’ tour - an absolute lifetime experience which none us us will never forget - well organised and felt very safe. Everyone takes turns with interacting with the lions and the guides are so knowledgeable. We also went on to feed the giraffes and tickle the tortoise- would I recommend this activity - definitely!

We did the walk with lions as experience when on our honeymoon. It was amazing the best thing I’ve ever done and the photos from the programmer are great aswell we have about 150 photos from them. Our guide Jim was really helpful and funny puts you at ease I would definitely recommend doing this and also feeding the giraffes after and visit the giant turtles
