  • Pool with bbq, feeding the wild animals on a Sunday is a special treat. There are restaurants if you don't want to bbq.  more »
  • Just outside the entrance there is the possibility to feed a giraffe, then paid the fee and it runs in under the boom. The park has a fairly large amount of animals that can be seen clearly from the roads, mainly herbivores. Lions and Cheea are unfortunately not visible, but we were fortunate enough to check out a Cheea that ' smited ' out and walked quite quietly on the car road outside the special enclosure. CHEER, Cheer!!!

  • So close to Lanseria it saved me a 5 hour drive to the Kruger National Park. Animals all seem to be in good condition. Was very disappointed at the jaguars in the cage areas though. Bit hectic the way...  more »

  • Super cool if wild nature tickles your interest. The animals can come as close as your door handle! It is dangerous, but more enticing and hilarious to drive with your windows open. I would recommend to pack a brewski 6 to keep you hydrated in that sun.
  • Excellent family venue and everything is so sparkling clean. This is kids love this place and we often have to drive here from Randburg just for them to have breakfast! To think that we can see so many magnificent animals right on our doorstep. Staff are amazing and we love spending our weekends here.
  • An awesome experience with the little one. Really thrilling indeed. Only draw back is that if the animal does not want to be seen then one loses out on the opportunity. Beautiful scenery adds to the shear joy of being in those surroundings.
  • Lovely experience! If your in Gauteng, it's a must visit experience, before you leave. Lion Cubs and Leopards handling was wonderful. Overall park tour was also a worth visiting.
  • I have not been to the park in decades and in some ways it was nice to see not much changed, but also not so nice. The park was stunning, vast and green which is probably also why the animals looked so good..lots of good food to eat. I loved the animal creche at the visitor center as you can get a lot closer to some of the animals, it does need some maintenance though but I also understand that money must be tight these days. The toilets outside the visitor center does however require some serious attention as it was smelling and feels very dirty. There was a great variety of animals, no rhino on our drive though which was a bit sad. In summary then, a great place to visit with a good variety of animals but some aspects does need some maintenance to really elevate the park.
