What people are saying about Hartbeespoort

Due to COVID we could not pet the lion cubs, we did however enjoy the park. Our 4 year old and 1 year old were very interested and enjoyed riding in the safari bus. Our driver Nick was very helpful and an excellent navigator. We would recommend this tour if you want to get up close and personal with some of the animals at the park. The Lions came right up to the bus!

Great experience overall....most of all it was safe....vehicle clean and comfortable....excellent driver and tour guide....pick up on time....we really enjoyed the lions and going to cradle of mankind.
