The whole lion park was asleep.  Being a little bit disappointed, we hoped that they will wake up and smell the humans and puppies!

There is a few white lions in the park.  Some of them arrived as cute little cubs.  The lion park donít run any breeding programs.  The park rescue lions and take care of them, no lion will be sold of giving away.

We spend quite some time at their camp.  When we arrived there both of them were having a snooze.  Later Gaucho got up, had a cuddle with Suzanna.  We even heard a muffled little growl!

There is also a little shop where you can buy souvenirs.  Can you spot Roefels and Asjas?  

There we also discovered that Asjas lost her nose somewhere!

There is also one Rooikat there.  He likes to hiss at humans!  Any cat owner will get an instant smile when this happens.  Heís mommy died when he still was a baby  and a farmer tried to take care of him.  Due to wrong nutrition the poor cat broke a bone or two.

Notes from the website:  

ďDrakenstein Lion Park was established in 1998 to provide lions in distress with sanctuary, where they could live in safety, free from abuse and persecution, and be treated with the compassion and respect they deserved.
The Park is situated in the scenic Cape Winelands and comprises of 50 acres of sprawling lion habitat.
The Park is actively involved in improving the quality of life of lions in captivity, locally as well as internationally, either by offering these animals a lifetime home or working in conjunction with other animal welfare organizations to secure a safe future for individual animals in dire need.
The Park is not involved in commercial breeding or trade and offers lifetime care to all of it's animals. All the animals brought to the Park are captive bred / hand reared and cannot be rehabilitated to the wild. The animals at the Park are assured a chance of living out their natural lives in an enriched and safe environment."

"Drakenstein Lion Park is the only genuine lion sanctuary in the Western Cape, with the largest lion population, including rare white lions.
Beware of facilities making false and misleading claims. Many claim to 'rescue lions', undertake 'research' and 'rehabilitate' lions, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Genuine lion sanctuaries are not involved in captive breeding and provide lifetime care to their resident animals. Genuine lion sanctuaries do not offer 'petting' opportunities. "

"The Park is open daily from 09h30 to 17h00
(closed 25th December)
Feeding Times are on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 16h00.
Admission is R50 for adults and R25 for children.
Group Rates are available on request for pre-booked groups.
www.lionrescue.org.za

Please visit if you are in the area.  They are truly magnificent animals.  

The wilddoggies now also know that there are creatures more veracious than them! ;)

Bye-bye!
