We visited on the 29th December, booked and paid online for a self drive. Got there early and it was still rather quite. The place was well kept, orderly, clean and neat. Toilets were well cleaned and taken care of.As we opted for the self drive we had a chance to take our time to spot the lions in the enclosure and view the wildlife in the open area. The lion and cheetah enclosures are rather small and one must remember these are not wild, but caged animals. Nevertheless it’s was good to see them up close.We were fortunate in that we saw an abundance of wildebeest, giraffe, bontebok, zebra, warthogs and the oryx/gemsbok. We found to route to be manageable with a mid size SUV.The disappointment was the restaurant. After a great self drive, we sat down to order, waiting around 40 mins for the food to arrive only for 2 of our meals to arrive partially cold. I had the brisket & wors with pap combo and it was terrible - cold, overcooked meat, bitter spinach and all round off putting. I had to send one of the meals back to get warm.Overall a fantastic visit and definitely worth a repeat visit.

Great to move around among the lions, they are not really in their natural environment since they are parked and fed but it is halfway between a zoo and a reserve.

We visited Lion park on 26 December with the kids. We were pleasantly surprised that it was not packed as it was a public holiday. There was plenty of parking. We took a lovely stroll around the beautifully kept vicinity. There are plenty of toilets on site and areas to wash hands. Kids had fun at the play area and enjoyed ice cream. We chose the self drive as I felt more comfortable travelling in our own car with all our kids (kids under 10). We bought the tickets at the venue. We were lucky to see the lions feeding at 3pm. A really awesome experience and highly recommended outing for the family. Just a heads up, the walk back to the exit is just shop after shop after shop filled with beautifully handmade local goodies to spoil yourself and your loved ones 😉.

Lions, Cheetahs, Hyenas, Wild dogs, Giraffe, Zebra, Buck and many more animals that can be seen at this park just an hour from Johannesburg. Great place to go for overseas visitors and educating the children. Definitely worth a visit

I wanted an interesting outing for the kids during school holidays. We visited the park on a Saturday morning and we had an amazing time. We opted for the 11:30 slot as it included the lions feeding schedule. I booked online and that was helpful as most slot are taken by the time you arrive and it also lessens the waiting time.

Really great experience from the friendly and helpful staff to the interesting facts and viewings of the animals.I did the sunset tour and saw a lion feeding which was quite interesting. Along the way we saw Wild African dogs, warthogs, wildabeasts, antelopes, cheetahs, giraffes, lions, leopards, hyenas, and porcupines.This is a zoo, a sanctuary style zoo, but if you are expecting a fully wild safari you should go to Krueger National Park. This place is great for those beginning their safari excursions though!
