WALK WITH LIONS
Situated on the Masuwe Estate, only 10 minutes from the centre of Victoria Falls town you'll find a group of lion cubs ranging from 3 to 16 months of age.
These lion cubs
offer guests an unparalleled experience and insight into the behaviour of this
threatened African species.
The encounter is fully supervised and professionally managed by an experienced and qualified team who have been working with lions for over 20 years originally at Gweru’s Antelope Park.
This activity is available in Zimbabwe only but arrangements can be easily made for guests staying in Livingstone on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls.
African Encounter has established Victoria Fall’s first “Lion Encounter”. This
activity offers a once in a lifetime insight into the behaviour and social
aspects of one of Africa’s most sought after photographic subjects, the Lion.

Walking with Lions at Victoria Falls
Upon arrival at Masuwe, biscuits/scones, tea, coffee and cordials will be served – after which the guide will give a short introductory talk including safety aspects of the adventure.
The guests will then be walked to an isolated area in the bush where
they will be introduced to the lion cubs and their handlers.
Videos are available for purchase and will be delivered to guests’ hotels that evening or the following morning (depending on which Safari is booked).
bring / wear
Guests should wear neutral
colored clothes. Wildlife may be encountered and therefore whites and bright
colors should be avoided. Also note the bush may be wet from dew in the early
morning and thus trousers and suitable shoes are recommended.
