The only theme park in the country, Lion Park Resort features a separate lion enclosure, water slides, and many rides, including the tallest roller coaster in Africa. If you came to see the lions, ask for a guide at the ticket counter. A small Ferris wheel offers an encompassing view of the whole park. The park also features a shaded, paved campsite where you can spend the night (but be aware that you may be kept awake by roaring lions). Activities and rides are mostly suited for children and teenagers.

The lions are the best attraction there! They are so big, well fed. Rollercoaster and wave pool was fun. Price affordable. Only problem is kids rides are unsafe. The teacup ride and Dumbo ride need safety chains so the kids don't fall out. Can't expect a kid not to try and stand up. Especially that the staff said it was safe for my 1 yr to go on the ride alone??? They need stricter age restrictions or I can see a litigation in the future.
A great place to relax and meet new people. Affordable entrance fee. Great location and easy to reach there by public transport. Lion viewing, the water plus rides all make it a great place to visit.
