DO NOT SUPPORT animal tourism. This is not ethical- think about it! You’re paying money to a company that is breeding lions and raising them in captivity. The cubs are taken away from their mom so YOU can play with them?! This is inhumane and their way of selling is as a wildlife conservation is a fraud. Please research yourself why walking with lions and playing with cubs isn’t good for the animals. Do not take what they say at face value! I understand it’s very tempting to have the opportunity to pet or play with a cub or walk with a lion “looks cool” and “it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity” but these wild animals deserve to be free. They will never be able to be free after being born in captivity- NEVER. It’s all done so we can take pictures and they can make money. DO NOT CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THIS PLEASE.
I went a few years ago when I didn’t realize what was actually going on. I did however note the sheer volume of lions they were breeding and did some research. Once a lion has interacted with humans it cannot be released into the wild. So what purpose do the adults serve? They are sold into canned hunting and do not get released. So this place is under the guise of being a conservation area but it’s truly just a breeding ground for canned hunting which is absolutely horrific.
