Lion Encounter offers the most unique and stimulating experience walking alongside and interacting with the lions for approximately two hours outside the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. The trained handlers and guides take the lions for walks in the bush. This is definitely an amazing experience and not to be missed!
