About The Lion Park

An incredible opportunity to get up close to many of South Africa’s wild animals. A perfect eco-tourism destination for all you animal lovers! The Lion and Safari Park is one place you should definitely not miss out on if you are planning to visit Johannesburg. The sanctuary homes different animal species including the lion, hyena, leopard, caracal, endangered wild dog, and more. Dive deep into the natural habitat of the wild, explore the picturesque beauty, let your kids play at the open space, feed the ostriches, and pet the lion cubs – the park has something for everyone.  

Apart from animals, it has fabulous curio shops (well arranged and nice selection) and walkways between each one, with beautiful landscaping in and around each. You are free to drive in your own car or enjoy the safari. A good bonding of human-animals can be visualized here as the welfare of animals is of the highest standard. You can also collect some souvenirs at the Five Dome and enjoy a scrumptious lunch at the Wetlands Bar and Restaurant and at the Bull ‘n’ Buck Grill. Make your vacation worthwhile!
