White Lion Project
The lion population in the Park is approximately 65, of which nearly 25 are sub-adults and cubs. All the lion cubs born at the Park are hand-reared. The cubs have been inoculated against all known feline diseases including rabies, and have all been tested and found to be free of feline aids and TB. All the cubs are micro-chipped. The park boasts several species of wildlife, including Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Lions, Meerkats and Crocodiles.
