Lion walks are available in the mornings and afternoons on a private estate.  The safari includes walking with these majestic animals as part of their pre-release training and funds go directly to the African Lion Rehabilitation & Release into the Wild Program.


Either breakfast or lunch & refreshments are included.


You can either take a 2-hour guided tour of the Victoria Falls to learn about the history from an experienced local guide, or you can opt to walk to the town and explore what it has to offer on your own.


Alternatively, visit our croc farm and witness how crocodiles are reared from eggs to fully-grown adults. The eggs hatch in about December or January, so if you are here in those months, ask to see them. Feeding times are a highlight and we recommend taking a guided tour with one of our experienced guides to observe this exciting event. Feeding time is at 10.15am to 10.30am, and 3.45pm to 4.00pm daily. 


The nature sanctuary has many species of interest, including lion, and there is a full leather workshop that sells its goods on-site, as well as in our curio shop located at the lodge itself.
