I have recently found out that the money I spent at this camp is not used for conservation of lions. There is NO conservation going on at this camp. This camp (as well as any other camp that allows close proxmity to or the petting of lions) is not for the purpose of conservation. It is for their own profit. And because of this. I am completely unsatisfied and dissapointed with my visit. I feel tricked and manipulated. When these cubs grow up and are no longer wanted by this camp they are sold to the canned hunting industry. And even though they sell to other "industries" as well, just one lion sold to the canned hunting industry is a major problem for lions as a species. Please don't put your money into visiting this camp or any other camp like it. If you want to assist lions and their fight for survival, please do your research and donate your money to a proper conservation non-profit.
Stunning experience. Beautiful self catering cottages. Big portions of food. Impeccably clean and well organised. Definitely highly recommended.
Very nice place to stay or visit.
Great experience! Being so close to the lions was one one of the best things I did in South Africa
This was one of the best experiences I've ever had as a South African.
