The Lion Park, an established Johannesburg, South African tourist destination, well loved by locals and foreigners alike, has become an amazing experience for all who visited over the last 50 years. The park has now moved to a brand new, world-class facility close to the Cradle of Humankind in Gauteng Province.
The Lion and Safari Park, to give it its full name, will offer guests an incredible day out, immersed in the beautiful natural surroundings of the area. Experience their famous guided game drives and explore and discover the untamed natural bush veld.
The Lion and Safari Park will offer guests the opportunity to interact with a multitude of amazing animals including cheetah and meerkats. Guests will be able to immerse themselves in the incredible experience of hand feeding a selection of animals, including the graceful and serene giraffes. Guided safari drives are one of the biggest attractions at the park, allowing visitors to experience a plethora of wildlife within their natural habitat. The drives will vary in length depending on your time schedule.
One can also enjoy a scrumptious meal at their top-class restaurants, while at the same time watching various wildlife species grazing and drinking. No visit to the Park will be complete without a stop at the Wetlands Bar - the view overlooking the wetland is nothing short of breath-taking, while delicious meals fill hungry tummies after a guided tour at the aptly named Buck ’n Bull Grill house.
Nestled amongst the foothills of the magnificent Magaliesberg Mountains, a mere 10 minute drive from Johannesburg's Lanseria Airport, off the scenic R512 towards Haartbeespoort dam, the park borders the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage area. Their new location, now boasting 800 hectares of open lands, allows the animals more space to roam freely.
The Park encourages schools and children to visit and a day outing provides the perfect opportunity and platform to learn more about the animals. The Lion and Safari Park also supports various research programs in the wild.
What would a day out with the animals be without a shopping stop to remember your trip by? Stop in at the "5 dome shopping experience" and browse through a vast selection of unique hand crafted curios, crafts and clothing, which make great gifts for those back home.
The park will be open 365 days a year and is also the perfect choice for your next conference or team building event. Great packages are available so contact them now.
