Playing with Lions



On our way from Pretoria to Johannesburg, we stopped for a few hours at the Lion Park. More than 85 lions live there, and also lots of other animals, native to South Africa.  The lions have large plains where they roam freely, but there are also nurseries for cubs who need care, and I got to play and cuddle with some of them, only 2 and 4 months old.

    I would encourage you to read the above articles with regards to the lion farming industry (please note that this is not a personal attack onto you or any one who has ever played with lion cubs. I have played with lion cubs in the past but have recently discovered the horrors surrounding this tourist attraction.)
    thank you.
