    It was the beast way to discover East London.
    Nahoon Beach was isolated with great view over the dunes, sandy beach and such a quite place to chill and relax.

    Outdoor fun for sure!
    The Dassie Trail is a wonderful meander along the river. The path is flat and fairly well maintained all the way to the end.
    Everyone enjoyed a picnic and swim on the river at the end of the trail.

    The staff is amazing, the marine fish section is beautiful but has deteriorated over the years compared to when I was a child! But still an amazing place with cute penguins and intelligent seals, had a blast with the fam. Got to feed the penguins aswells

    It really was a wet and windy day today, but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and rounded it off with a pint at the pub by the fire. Owner couldn’t have been more welcoming and took time out to talk to the little ones about the snakes and lizards.

    We went for a family outing to the Lion Park in East London on Sunday 8 September 2019.

    There wasn't too much to see, however the animals looked healthy and well cared for.

    Some maintenance is required at the playground and seating area.

    Overall it wasn't a bad experience, next time we will make a day out of it and have a family braai. The best time to go is on a Sunday around feeding time at 12:30, because then you will get to see the Lions and Tigers.

    In all honesty, I won't be coming back to the zoo. With the price you would expect abit more. So many enclosures in disrepair, some completely broken down. Kids enjoyed seeing the Tiger, lions and the jaguar. Some of the animals did seem to be very under fed and agitated, especially the jaguar and tiger. Pathways were badly kept. On a positive, the staff were friendly and they were busy with guttering to harvest rain water, but please, the ponds need to be better maintained.

    This is a decent venue to have a picnic off peak time or not on a public holiday. Easily accessible good facilities. Gets very overcrowded and noisy during peak times.

    Fun to just relax with your friends. Especially when you start getting a bit competitive at the magic company
