Fodor's Expert Review Lion Park

Cradle of Humankind Zoo/Aquarium

This highly-rated drive-through safari park offers a rare chance to get up close with Africa’s iconic predator. And while the experience might be trumped by seeing lion in more natural, expansive settings like the Kruger National Park, the opportunity to interact with a lion cub, take a guided walk with a cheetah, or feed a giraffe is not to be passed up. A leisurely drive around the small park will also guarantee sights of lion and other carnivores roaming through grassland, but try visit when it’s a little cooler (early evening is a good time), as they tend to seek shady refuge during hot days. The lunch menu is reasonably priced.
