Customer Reviews

It was great and the kids had a fantastic time! - Nicolette Pesev

What a wonderful drive that was! And all the animals so looked good after - and must also mention all the friendly staff that do the covid testing at gate - everything so well organised - Christa Van Straaten

We enjoyed the visit greatly. From beginning to end, it was managed smoothly. The restroom and other facilities were very clean. It only needed very limited interaction (just at the gate to verify entry). Necessary social distancing protocols were practiced on all places. Thank you for a memorable experience!! - Srinivasan Venkatramani

It was a really good experience and an awesome 2hrs spent driving around and taking pictures. - Karabo Mbonani

Not only was the self drive at The Lion and Safari Park great value for money, it was also a wonderful day out. We packed a picnic lunch for the car and headed to the park early on Father's Day. The guides who met us at the front gate were friendly and courteous and there were stringent Covid-19 measures in place before we could enter. We had already done all sign ins on line so we were able to move straight to the main park entrance. The kids loved seeing buck and zebra along the way to the lion enclosures and it was wonderful to breathe some 'game park" air once again. The majestic beasts we saw in the enclosures had us all in awe and feeding time at 12pm added extra delight to an already happy day. After driving through the enclosures we then headed off on a little drive around the park. The highlight of the day was probably the friendly giraffe who was putting his (or her?) neck into sun roofs to find food. Kids and adults alike had a wonderful day exploring the park and we would highly recommend The Lion and Safari Park to anyone wanting some time in nature that is just a stone's through from the bustling city of Joburg. - Dannean Krige
