Do not miss this experience. You begin with a great breakfast in the bush. You receive safety instruction. The walk is exciting. I never felt afraid or unsafe. The guides are outstanding. They take your cameras and take as many pictures as you want. Really, do not miss this on your trip

This was a marvellous excursion. It takes about 3 hours round trip from your hotel and you really do walk beside, touch and stroke lions for about 1 hour as you walk through the bush. This park rears lion cubs and prepares them for release back to the wild. We walked with 2 young lions, 20 months old brother and... More

This is an absolute must do for any trip to Vic Falls. We visited on the Zimbabwe side. We were promptly collected from our hotel and taken to the place where we watched a video and had a safety briefing. We then met two beautiful female lion cubs and all had a turn sitting and patting them. I have done... More

In this activity you actually have the chance to interact with lions. The lions we petted and walked with were about 15 months old. They are wild animals so there is certainly a risk. Although we were told this is a breeding program to help get more lions back into the wild I am not sure that this is not... More

What a wonderful experience spending an hour or so walking with two lions(a brother and sister) through some bush. Some great pictures were taken and we also purchased the video taken by the guides. Not only was it fun but it is helping to re-populate the species which has fallen off drastically oven the past years. These 16 month old... More

We had a fantastic walk with a pair of lions at this activity. You get so close to the lions and actually get to pat them. The guides who accompany you make sure that you get plenty of time with the lions and they take plenty of photographs with your camera for you to take with you

My partner and myself were so lucky to do this walk on our own without anyone else! It was by far the best thing I have ever done in my life! We walked with two 18 month old Cubs! I would totally recommend!! Well worth the money!

Experience these majestic animals in their own environment. Well structured and very interesting morning spent with competent guides. Over 16 years only allowed so not a young family activity. Certainly a must if you want to see the animals up close and personal.

Walking with the lions was a great experience. The guides were great and the lions just did their thing. We walked beside them and patted them for a while and then we watched them play and lay in the sun. Definitely a must do.

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to gently interact with these beautiful creatures! Be prepared for some rough terrain while you do it, but worth the cost and the walking challenge!
