Lion Park

Vacation Travel Guide
Lion Park showing zoo animals and dangerous animals

Experience the adventure of getting up close with Africa’s world-famous wildlife. Observe a pride of lions, walk with cheetahs and feed a giraffe.

Explore the Lion Park to enjoy guaranteed sightings of Africa’s captivating wildlife. Spot carnivorous predators, see a variety of colorful antelopes, meet lion cubs and walk alongside a cheetah. The park serves as both a destination for eco-tourism and a sanctuary that protects and rears African animals.

You can discover the park and its wildlife in your own car or on a 1-hour guided game drive. Game drives include knowledgeable guides who provide information about the animals.

Keep an eye out for the game animals that roam freely throughout a vast grazing area. These include the black wildebeest, native to Lesotho and South Africa’s central region. Look for photogenic antelope species such as the springbok, South Africa’s national animal. Enter the fenced enclosures to come face-to-face with predatory animals. View magnificent prides of lions then try to spot leopards, which often rest in the treetops.

Experience the rare chance to pet a lion cub and feed a giraffe. Spot caged hyenas, jackals and wild dogs as well as caracals, notable for their long tasseled ears.

Join an experienced guide and walk with a big cat while learning about its characteristics and habits. Take a 3-hour tour with the park’s animal trainer and watch as he demonstrates the ability to interact with lions and cheetahs.

Located in the town of Lanseria, the Lion Park is a 40-minute drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria. A shuttle service is available from Johannesburg, Pretoria and surrounding areas of the Gauteng province. Advance bookings are necessary. Renting a car is a convenient way to get here and allows the chance to enjoy the park’s self-drive activities. You can also visit nearby attractions, such as Lesedi Cultural Village and Hartbeesport Dam.

The park is open daily, including public holidays. Check the park’s official website for admission fees plus a schedule of tours and activities. Accommodation is available at the park in the form of safari camps.
