Lion Park near Paarl

Drakenstein Lion Park is involved in the re-homing of lions which are kept in intolerable conditions, both locally and overseas. The Park is one of a dedicated handful that opposes the hunting of captive born lion and does everything in its power top acquire lions destined for hunting farms, and provide these animals with a safe haven.

The park is situated on 7.5 hectares of ground in the scenic Cape Winelands. One can stroll through the park at your leisure and view these magnificent beasts at eye level or get a bird's eye from one of the raised viewing platforms.

We do not allow our young lions to be used as gratuitous playthings and actively oppose the practice of using lion cubs in this manner.

All of the lions housed at the Park are captive born / hand reared animals and cannot be rehabilitated into the wild. They are ensured a safe haven where they can live out their lives in as natural conditions as is practically possible.
