I've been in SA for a year and this is one of the best animal experiences I've had. Make sure you're over a recommended height to walk with the lions - they spent most of the time tying to eat this one french kid.

Did you not know that French kids are absolutely delicious? Jokes aside, one always needs to be very careful when walking with lions. They are the majestic powerful "King of Beasts" and we respect that.
