What is there to do?

African Lion Safari is an entertaining and educational environment to watch all of the animals, in the comfort of your own car! Experience what it really is like to be 'on safari' as you up close and personal with lions, elephants and lots more of the iconic African wildlife. 

Drive through the 9km trail and through 7 large game reserves including the Rocky Ridge Veldt and Simba Lion Country and see the animals up close! Watch as they come close to your car and peer in, but don't worry you are safe! It's a great chance for the little ones to witness the animals act naturally. 

If it's a hot day, why not cool off in the Misumu Bay Waterplay, with slides and buckets to keep you cool. There is a height restriction in the waterplay which is 38 inches. There's also a children's playground including a safari centure and a special toddlers playground for the small ones. Including ball pits, slides and ropes to keep them entertained.

If you want to relax, head on the Nature Boy Railway or African Queen boat cruise for a glide down the river and soak in the natural surroundings after your action-packed day. 

Don't forget to keep an eye on the animal presentations, including a birds of prey flying demonstration, parrot paradise and the great reptiles of the world and see the expert handlers and their animals in all their glory. 

There's lots of dining and refreshment stops along the way where you can get a ice cool slush, pizza, hot-dug, ice-cream and pretty much anything that takes your fancy! Along with a cool gift shop too to take someone home with you after your fun-filled day.
