Visit the world renowned and number one tourist destination, the Lion and Safari Park. This 600 hectare park is situated very close to Johannesburg and Pretoria, it can be found in the Hartbeespoort, Magaliesburg and Cradle of Humankind area. And is ideal for a half day tour for visitors with limited time on their hands. Also very closely situated to Lanseria International Airport. The park moved recently to a stunning area a little north from its previous location. The new location offers beautiful scenery and is also five times larger than the old location which was closer to Johannesburg. 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.
The antelope area, containing blesbok, gnu, impala, gemsbok, and zebra, is in a separate part away from the lions and other carnivores.
With this Tour open vehicle game drives are provided in their safari vehicles through the four different lion pride camps, including the rare white lion and cheetah camps and the large antelope area. You will get the chance to view and photograph animals up close and personal.
Experience a Giraffe up close and face to face. Stand on a platform to feed this extraodinary animal by hand. This is definitely not a destination to miss out on when visiting Johannesburg.
