The Lion & Safari Park
The Lion & Safari Park, an established tourist destination well loved by locals and foreigners alike, has been creating magical memories for 50 years.
The Lion & Safari Park moved to a brand new world-class facility in the Cradle of Humankind area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in July 2016, and offers guests an incredible day out, immersed in the beautiful natural surroundings.
Nestled amongst the foothills of the magnificent Magaliesberg, a mere 10-minute drive from Lanseria Airport, off the scenic R512 towards Hartbeespoort Dam, the park now boasts 600 hectares of open land, which allows the animals more space to roam freely.
A day visit to the park provides the perfect platform for school children to learn about the animals, as well as the various research programmes that the Lion & Safari Park are involved in, while visitors of all ages can enjoy viewing various wildlife species grazing and drinking in their natural habitats.
No visit to the park would be complete without a stop at the Wetlands Bar and Restaurant. The view overlooking the wetlands is nothing short of breath-taking, while delicious meals fill hungry tummies at the Buck ’n Bull Grill house. Speaking of hungry tummies, guests will also be able to engage in the incredible experience of hand-feeding a selection of animals, including graceful giraffes.
Apart from being a world-class tourist destination, the Lion & Safari Park also offers unique conferencing, team-building and event opportunities. Great packages are available and include adventure activities as river rafting, quad biking and abseiling.
What would the perfect end to the day be without a souvenir to remember your trip by? Stop in at the “five dome shopping experience” and enjoy a vast selection of unique hand-crafted curios, crafts and clothing, which make great gifts for loved ones back home.
The park is open 365 days a year, and is certainly an experience not to be missed.
