Observe the king of the jungle from up close at Drakenstein Lion Park, a kid-friendly attraction still relatively unknown to tourists. The park houses mostly rescued lions taken from zoos, circuses, and private owners. The safe haven not only provides special chances to view adult lions and tigers, but also to observe them feeding and frolicking with their young. Plan to see Drakenstein Lion Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Klapmuts day trip planning website.

Nice to visit with kids/family, has picnic tables with shade dotted around in a large field between enclosures, so you can make more of a day of the outing. Lions can be fairly close, although can also hide away at far end of enclosures too. Enough enclosures and lions to ensure you do get a good viewing of at least some of them.
Wear comfortable closed shoes when visiting this park. The place is huge, walking from one pen to the next can be tiring. And be patient...the lions were mostly out of sight. We were lucky a couple of them wandered over to their watering hole so we could got a good look. The work being done here is admirable.
