What an experience ! We had a wonderful day and the kids were in awe of the magnificent animals. The little monkeys amused the kids for wuite a while with all their tricks. Was a lovely day.

We did the early morning walk with the lions, the 2 lions are well behaved the rangers knows them well and it was fun. Lions are magical animals. The cubs are adorable and the cheetah cub is very playful. All in all very enjoyable.

What a jewel in Limpopo. Although only rated a 4 star, the facilities and service was 5 star. This was our 3rd visit in 4 years and every-time we enjoy our stay. Enough game as well and the walk with the lions was an experience...More

The safari was quite nice, but I wonder why keep some lions in a "cage". The huge National park Kruger is so close that the lions could be in a natural place. Somehow the safari left the feeling of getting the money from the tourists.

We have visited the Ranch for the second time after some 4 years and were really surprised about the developments in there. First time there we had the feeling all the project is somehow about conservation and your payments are going to some good purposes....More

This is a very memorable thing to do with the kids or as a couple. You can also go on game drives to view the Lions and then stop to have photos taken with the Lions. A absolute must.

This was a personal highlight of a family stay at the The Ranch Resort - I highly recommend this activity. And NO! The lions are not drugged or abused - you could feel the love and respect from the rangers for these wild animals. And...More

Please DON'T! Please look up ethical travel and do NOT go to pet cubs or walk with lions. This is CANNED HUNTING. If you don't know about it, please google it and research... it's worth the time if you care about lions... More
