At the lions reserve, the safari team will welcome you and consecutively will brief you with a short introductory chat on the lions and on the safety measures which should be taken during the adventure and the time you will spend with the lions.

Time for the Feline Encounter - Once the keeper and Rangers are done with the brief, it is time for you to meet your majestic host in its natural enclosure. You will feel like walking in the African desert, sun shining bright over your head and a building excitement about seeing the lions up close. For one hour, you will be walking around the park next to this majestic animal, a surreal moment that could well be a movie scene from Narnia. You will get to pet your lion as well.

A walk to remember - While walking with your lion, you will get to discover the amazing place where those creatures live. See them walk around, laze on the grass, enjoying a nap, play with each other, hopping on the rocks on the river banks and scaling the trees. Your rangers and keepers will also elaborate on the reproduction and conservation program for your newly made fur-buddies.
