Take a walk of the brave!

Monarto Safari Park’s 360-degree lion experience is all about getting YOU up close with the amazing African Lion. This jaw-dropping encounter gives you a prey’s-eye view into the world of these awesome predators.

If you’ve been to Monarto Safari Park (and if you haven’t THIS is your reason to go), you’ll know the bus ride out to the 10-hectare home of the lions is all part of the adventure. Drive past the giraffes and rhinos, and arrive at the Lions 360 dome… but this time YOU’LL be the one on the inside.

Keepers told us this was an enriching experience for the lions just as much as it was for us humans. The lions were very inquisitive and got a good look at us from ALL angles. When they say “up close” they really mean it! You can even hand feed a lion with the feed package (minimum age 10).

Seeing these beautiful carnivores so close is an awesome family experience accessible to all. Kids of all ages can check out Lions 360 and all the kids in our group absolutely loved it! (Be mindful of your child’s reaction to the experience of having a lion close by – it might not suit little ones that scare easily).

Take photos, snap a selfie and be amazed by these majestic animals. It really is an experience to remember, and the kids will be talking about it for days!

If you’re looking for a fantastic experience for family or friends this Christmas – especially those who already have everything or are hard to buy for – then definitely put the Lion experience at Monarto Safari Park on the Christmas list!
