Description

Love Lions Alive Sanctuary is ideally suited for the quiet, respectful nature lover, and offers a unique guest experience where you can overnight in a private camp. Your host Andi and her team live in tents alongside 4 lions in a shady grove situated on the side of a rocky mountain. Join them for sundowners on a boulder overlooking the Eastern Free State's beautiful valleys and mountains followed by a braai around their campfire.

Accommodation is available in 3 structured tents which are each able to accommodate 2 adults, and are individually styled and furnished. Sleeping in comfortable tents alongside lion enclosures is a treat. Beds have warm duvets and blankets and all tents are carpeted. Towels are provided. It can get really cold so make sure you have warm jackets and boots.

This experience although thoroughly special, is very ordinary in the sense that it is truly the everyday living space and routine of Andi and team. Depending on which tent you are in, the bathroom is located between 5 and 30 m away from the tents in a rock side setting. The tented kitchen is self-catering so feel free to bring along extra snacks and breakfast.

The braai process takes several hours so meals are eaten quite late. Lighting is solar powered and it is recommended that guests bring their own headlamp or torch for additional light. Please advise us regarding braai preferences if you do not eat your common garden South African fare. We are happy to braai alternatives. Provided is a small assortment of alcoholic beverages but you may bring along a special bottle of wine or something of your choice for enjoying as a sundowner or around the fire.

Please note that this establishment is a working lion sanctuary first and foremost. We are there for the lions, the lions are not there for us.
