GOOD PLACE GUARANTEEDTO SEE LIONS
jul. 2021
Last year during lockdown I yearned to see how the Lions were doing and decided that although I could not go visit, I could at least adopt a Lion or two for a reasonable amount for a year.
I chose Tana the tiger for myself because when I last visited she looked so regal reclining on a mound and staring into space. My grandson was allocated Aneta.
On Monday (19 July 2021) we decided to visit, although there was forecast of rain. Before we left home we watched the weather coming in fast but hoped it wasn't raining in Paarl, We specifically wanted to be there at 16h00 when they feed the animals. Feeding times are at 16h00 on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays. My daughter in law was sceptical about her safety and not sure the fence could keep the Lions from "getting to her".
The first enclosure on the right hand side housed a Lion and Lioness. Ena (the Lioness) started growling and I decided to do a video of her. To my delight she "stormed" me and put on quite a show.
When we got to Aneta's enclosure my grandson was so proud to see his name as having adopted her.
Although it occasionally drizzled very lightly, my son enjoyed observing the Lions and was surprised that there was a Tiger. All the Lions are in good condition and the white Lions are beautiful.
After the Lions were fed some of them Roared. It is such a privilege to see them up close.
There are little tables with umbrellas and on a beautiful day you can sit down and make a day of it.

An Amazing experience
apr. 2021 • Familie
The people are doing an amazing job providing sanctuary to previously abused animals.
We visited today not knowing what to expect but was pleasantly surprised the lions are kept in large enclosure’s by caring staff that truly care.
If you would like to get up close and personal with lions and tigers then Drakenstein is well worth the visit.

Great to see the lions being looked after so well
feb. 2020
Lions, a few tigers and other big cats, including white lions to be seen in large paddocks with natural flora, and as free as they can be while in captivity. Many have really sad stories behind their origins and now they are somewhere safe. Fed on dead chickens three times a week - it is good to go during the feeding times to see the lions acitve. The keepers care very much for them and would love some extra donations so they could afford to give the lions red meat more often.

Night camping with the lions
feb. 2020
What an experience that we simply cannot get within the UK (unless paying a fortune and not getting the weather)

Our experience was great from the moment we turned up until we left the next morning but the experience staying in the the tents surrounded by lions was one in a million.

The park itself has about 26 lions all with different names and characters. We were lucky as we got there just before feeding time at 4 pm (not done each day) and saw all the lions really animated and exited about the feed.

Father the park had official closed we were able to roam pretty freely around the park and see the lions without anyone else expect the staff been there. The same happened the next morning from sunrise when the cats are more animated.

The BBQ was excellent which is included in the price and we paid about £80 per couple per tent for the whole experience which is super cheap coming from the uk.

The noise from the lions starts after dark when you can hear them communicate and gives you a feeling that they are night next to you. We didn’t get much sleep as you can hear them all night which is why we were there, but the most special part was about 5am just before sunrise when all the lions were talking to each other making a sound like nothing else.

The staff where first class and are all there to protect and care for the animals

If you are in Cape Town or surrounding area this is a must for all nature / lion / camping / animal lover

Lion Encounter
jan. 2020 • Familie
Excellent excision. We visited during this lion sanctuary during lion feeding and it was awesome. The only thing separating you from these majestic animals is a 6ft wired fence...you are that close. We saw all different species of lions, including a white lion and a Bengal tiger... A must do!

Lovely place for the rescued lions
des. 2019 • Par
It's great to see the animals being cared for in a place which is better for them than a circus or a small cage. The guide who came round with us was most informative and knowledgeable. There is no coffee shop but you can get cold drinks and ice creams. It's good to see so many sponsors on the boards which give a description of each lion's history. I am glad we visited.

MY ONLY PROBLEM IS THOSE STAIRS
des. 2019
For a long time this was on my bucket list.
I am retired now and have all the free time on my hands to pick up some friends and drive into the Countryside.
So on 02 December 2019, an old high School Friend, her husband and her sister accompanied me to Drakenstein Lion Park. We bought Combo tickets for Chimp Haven as well but there is not much to see. Just a few Chimps. Marmosets, Capuchin family and some black Swans and Duikers.
When we arrived at Drakenstein Lion Park those steep stairs up to the Reception almost put us off. We were 2 at 68 years and two at 72 years. Then we had to exit to the Lions, who is on the Grounds via more stairs downward. I am sure there is enough space on the ground to have easier access ?.
The Lion Park is truly amazing. I just love these Big Cats and they are looking so good. Their enclosures are quite large.
There are picnic areas so do take along a basket and a blanket. The children can enjoy the open spaces. Feel free to explore and there are Staff around should you want to ask questions
I wanted to be there at Feeding time, which is at 16h00 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Lions and Lionesses were quite active and almost wondering when, then. I am sure with Monday being so far from the last Friday meal would also have me pacing.
To meander along and watch these majestic animals and some of them almost "interacting" was just priceless. I went around and around a couple of times.
The Bengal tiger just reclined on it's hill and "stared" into space.
I do lots of Mission/charity work and I would love to bring as many people (older folk) and little children to come and enjoy these animals, whom I am sure they have never seen BUT those stairs are a bit scary.
Please see how you can remedy this - thank you
