It is Africa’s first genuine programme working to ethically re-introduce the offspring of captive-bred African lions back into the wild.The Park also welcomes guests and eco-tourists to its stunning campsite; a haven of tranquillity set in the African bush. Visitors can enjoy the relaxed environment as well as participate in the vast array of world-class activities offered at the Park, including lion walks, elephant rides and walks, game viewing, fishing, and many more. Antelope Park, home to Animal Planet’s popular wildlife series “Roaring with Pride”, with over 3 million viewers and airing in 33 different countries. Antelope Park have been the subject of a major UK TV wildlife documentary “LION COUNTRY” and the Park has also featured in a number of other wildlife shows including “Karina: Wild on Safari”.
