Lion Park Resort, Gaborone

3.5
The only theme park in the country, Lion Park Resort features a separate lion enclosure, water slides, and many rides, including the tallest roller coaster in Africa. If you came to see the lions, ask for a guide at the ticket counter. A small Ferris wheel offers an encompassing view of the whole park. The park also features a shaded, paved campsite where you can spend the night (but be aware that you may be kept awake by roaring lions). Activities and rides are mostly suited for children and teenagers.

  • Lots of fun for the whole family...especially for the kids! Entrance fee not too bad if you take into consideration that you can spend a whole day in the resort and all the attractions are incl. The restaurant's menu & prices not too bad...service is poor! The music tends to be too loud...
  • They keep increasing their ticket prices but offer nothing new in the resort..
  • Developments on going at this place. It looks like it will be the ultimate entertainment destination when it's all done.
  • Good place to keep your kids intertained while you relax.
  • Should have more water rides only two are available , but roller coaster was awesome
