During the two weeks here I had the chance to bottle feed lion cubs, go for a walk with three year old lions. Some of us were lucky enough to have our accmodation ( chalet style rooms, a bedroom and a bathroom) in the enclosure where the year old lions were, this made for an interesting dsh out of the enclosure at breakfast time! Harmless really but rather boisterous and learning the instincts that they need in the wils.
Other activites were cleaning out the enclosres of the five year old lions, a rather forebodding acticity considering the lions were hungry and still in the enclosure.
Feeding the lions; its illegalto feed live food to them so we picked up dead animals from the local vets/ other reserves in order to do this.
Taking time to sit with Emma the Cheetah was surreal.
Feeding the roaming animals in the reserve, no lions, but gazelles and zebra as well as ostrich roam free.
Quad biking and a trip to Pilansberg was all arranged as well as, for those that wanted it a trip to a water park- sunbathing, swimming and rides!
I booked this through Meaningful Traveller although you can do this direct, I amnot sure how much cheaper it is, probably around £150.
I would consider doing this again but a direct flight this time.
Emirates Airlines are now by airline of choice, a superb standard of service and inflight entertainment system.
The indirect flight was rather erksome stopping off at midnight four three hours in Dubai. DO A DIRECT FLIGHT, its worth the extra £80.If you dont book direct they will still pick you up, possibly.
- Pros:Awesome experience, Surreal,
- Cons:you are there to work.
