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.
