The Lion Park is an eco-tourism destination, breeding ground and sanctuary that focuses on the well-being and regeneration of the endangered Wild Dog, the rare White Lion and Cheetah. The focus of the park is to provide an opportunity for people, both local and overseas tourists, to learn more about these wonderful African animals.


The Lion Park has separate grounds for the carnivores and then the other animals. Visitors to the park can also expect to see zebras, giraffes, Blesbok, Gemsbok and Springboks. The lions kept at the park are from Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Northern Gauteng and Botswana although sometimes new lions are introduced to prevent inbreeding. Visitors to the Lion Park will be delighted to know that it stays open 365 days a year (in the evenings too!). Bookings must be made for the Cheetah Walks, guided game drives, Night Drives, an Alex Larenty tour or stay in the tented camp. Self-drives are also an option.
