Walk with Lions in Antelope Park

Visit a park dedicated to rehabilitating lion populations and walk alongside the king of the jungle before watching them feed.

About Your Trip

The natural beauty of Zimbabwe with its savanna grasslands, azure sky and golden sunsets is matched only by the majesty of its wildlife. And the lion reigns as the most regal of them all. Observe these beautiful beasts as you walk with lion cubs and witness adult lions feed from a distance on this exciting, family-friendly DreamTrip to Gweru in the Midlands Province of Zimbabwe.

Experience other epic adventures on your own during your 3-day stay in Antelope Park. Located on 3,000 acres (1,214 hectares), Antelope Park was named the Leading Private Game Reserve at the 2016 World Travel Awards. Your visit will help support a nonprofit dedicated to boosting the population of wild lions.

What we love:
• You’ll see lions up close as they survey their territory during an intimate lion walk with cubs.
• Antelope Park developed the African Lion Rehabilitation & Release into the Wild Programme, which helps the declining wild lion population of the continent.
• You can find something to please everyone in the family at Antelope Park — activities available include fishing, canoeing, an elephant interaction and more (at an additional cost).

Gweru is the capital of Zimbabwe’s Midlands Province, and is home to people from varying ethnic backgrounds. In fact, over 5 languages are prevalent in the province, adding to the cultural diversity of the region.

Zimbabwe’s sprawling savannas are home to some of the largest land animals on Earth, including elephants, leopards, giraffes, rhinos and, most notably, Katanga and Southeast African lions. Zebras and antelope scatter at the sight of these fearsome predators as cackling hyenas observe from the grassy sidelines.

In 2005, Antelope Park developed ALERT, a nonprofit dedicated to the aid of the African Lion Rehabilitation & Release into the Wild Programme. This invaluable project focuses on increasing the numbers of wild lions to combat the effects of poaching and illegal game hunting across the continent. With ALERT, lions are bred and encouraged to form their own natural prides, as well as to hunt and develop skills necessary for the wild. When lions are ready to fend for themselves and have acquired much-needed hunting abilities, they are released into dedicated game reserves, where they can exist and interact with nature in peace.
