There is also a brand new five dome shopping experience visitors can browse through should they require some souvenirs for friends or family back home. At the park is also a world class photograpic centre. Animals indigenous to Africa can be found in this reserve such as large herbivores, ostriches and various predators.
The reserve is home to over 80 lions including the rare white lions and many other carnivores such as South African cheetah, Cape wild dog, hyena and spotted hyena, black-backed jackal, and a wide variety of antelope which roam freely in the antelope area.
