"See Lions at the Lion Park" Lion Park Tip by Eish
Lion Park, Johannesburg: 22 reviews and 51 photos
The Lion Park is a little like a zoo, with enormous enclosures. We have taken a self-guided drive through the various enclosures to see lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, hyena, and variious buck. This costs R80 for adults, and R55 for children 4-12. Guided drives are available, but we have no experience with them.
The lions look lazy and fat, and deceptively slow, but do not be conned into a false sense of security that they will not be able to attack you if you get out of your car in the lion enclosure. There have been some incidents of tourists getting out for photo opportunities, and being munched.
After the drive, it is possible to pet a lion cub and have photographs taken with them, and to feed a giraffe from a platform as high as the giraffe's head. Food and drink is available.
Address: R114 near the corner with Hans Strijdom (R512)
