We went there for a family day, basically there is nothing todo, the braai and picnic facilities are not up to scratch, and its appalling to see how small the cages were that these animals were in, disgusted!!!!

Not too brilliant. Not many animals. Lions are good though. Expensive for what you see. Lions well looked after and you can drive into where some of them are.
