    Lion and Safari Park
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    The park is home to more than 85 lions and other carnivores like the cheetah, hyena and wild dog. Lion Park is home to the rare white lion, so make sure you bring your camera for some exclusive shots. At Cub World you can observe baby lions, how cute is that? And when you are not frightened by tall animals with long necks, you can also feed the giraffes and ostriches!

We did the half day Lion Park tour with Moafrika Tours in March. I apologise that I cannot remember our driver but he was delightful - spoke a lot about Johannesburg and informative on all sorts of things. Our pick up and drive to the park was faultless.
We also thoroughly enjoyed the Lion Park. Do not pay attention to those who criticise it - yes it is nit animals in the wild but the drive through the grounds is beautiful and the animals are amazing. The lion cub experience was brilliant. Everything was well run and great facilities.

I made a combination tour with Moafrika today (Feb/25/2019): Lion Park & Pretória. Excellent. I recommend. Our Guide was Stanley, of MoAfrika. He was Very Nice and explained in detail the history of South África. During the morning we saw Voortrekker monument, Paul Kruger Museum and other important spots in Pretoria. Afternoon in the Lion Park, where we can see Lions, cheetaa and other Animals Very close. 8 hours of activity. Worth It. Thanks to MoaAfrika and special thanks to Stanley!!!!!!

We took a mini safari tour and the cub interaction at the Lion and Safari Park, it was a fantastic experience!
Our tour guide JJ was very kind, helpful, knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to see him interacting with a hyena and one of the giraffes!
We loved our experience!

I booked the half day tour to Lion Park with MoAfrika. Everything worked as expected, our guide Mtunzi arrived on time to my hotel and was very friendly and gave us information about Johannesburg and the life in South Africa. The park is nice, you can see a lot of lions an other animals in their natural environment, while you are in a truck. But the highlight of my visit was the encounter with the lions cubs. It was really an amazing experience to be with them and touch their fur.

I specifically chose the Lion and Rhino park tour because of the tiger and cheetah petting feature.
The woman handling the tiger petting/picture desk was NOT HELPFULL AT ALL!
We arrived at 1pm. I was paying the required fee, THEN the woman said it was LUNCH TIME and was closed. (Her lunch time OR the animals). Don’t know which.

I was frustrated and leaving when I noticed OTHER visitors we being allowed contact with the cheetahs. The woman at the desk didn’t offer me cheetah contact while the lions were on break. This would have made the entire difference between satisfaction and frustration.

MY Moafrika tour guide ADOLPH came to the rescue and saved the day!
He made contact with the management of the park and arranged a differenet lion host for me to visit the cheetahs until the lions were available.

ADOLPH saved the day for my tour. His intervention made the difference between a nice park visit and an unhappy one.

The only other small issue was, some of the small animal enclosures we covered with very heavy wire which made photographs impossible.

Otherwise tour was very good. Thanks

I completed two tours with Moafrika, Lion Park and the following day Half Day Joburg. They went above and beyond, both times collecting from one location and returning to a different hotel/airport. Drivers all friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend

From my experiences I would not call this a safari or educational. Visitors are placed in large crowded trucks that are totally caged in and driven around to see groups of lions in various small enclosures. I assumed the guide in the truck would educate guests about lions and their behaviors. Instead he called them "lazy." The lions at this place are not allowed to hunt, so they are bored, not lazy. Additionally he taunted the lions as we parked next to them so everyone in the truck did also. As far as petting the cubs, we did not, as handling wild animals is inappropriate unless you are a wildlife expert.

Dear Sharon, As previously stated, we think that you should rather post your review on the Lion Parks page, as you have not mentioned anything to do with MoAfrika Tours, and with its services as a Tour Operator. You wrote a previous review which was similar and it was removed by TripAdvisor because it did not comply with their guidelines. The Lion Park is definitely not a Safari. If you want to go on a Safari, you can go to Pilanesberg National Park, or Kruger National Park. These are game reserves and we offer packages to both. On a Safari, you will have to search for game, and you do not have a 100% chance of seeing certain animals. In the Lion Park, the animals are kept in enclosures, therefore you will not need to search for them and you are guaranteed to see them. If you are unhappy with the location you were taken to, then we suggest doing better research next time. Our itineraries are packed full of information on the different locations which we offer to take you to. It also lists the different activities in which you partake in. Best regards, Michelle
