Lombardini Game Farm is situated in the Seekoei River Valley just outside Jeffrey’s Bay, only a few minutes away. Their professional tour guides take you around the park to introduce you to the wonders of African nature. More than 20 different kinds of African species are preserved in this reservation, including the white rhino, giraffe, buffalo, fish eagles, different species of antelope, and more.
Your guide will take you as close as possible to observe and photograph them. Of course, safety is always prioritized. During the tour, you will be given explanation about the animals you are spotting.
The second option is Lion Park in Port Elizabeth, a forty minutes’ drive away from J-Bay. Lion Park offers visitors a unique close-up game viewing experience of wild animals in their natural habitat. As the name implies Lion Park’s main attraction is the lions. Several years ago, the white lion was very close to extinction. To give this species a change for survival, the park started a breeding program.
The aim of the Park’s continued breeding program is to create a second gene pool to breed healthy white lions and to conserve this rare species. This means encouraging the breeding, raising the cubs to strong and healthy lions and setting them free into nature. There is normally the opportunity to witness feeding time and it is also possible that you may be able to pet the little lion cubs.
The cubs up to 3 months old are kept apart so they can grow strong to compete with the others. At this stage, they are very playful and curious to humans and do not mind playing a little game of innocent wrestling or with you.
Apart from its primary role as a game-viewing and lion-breeding facility, the lion park is also a renowned sanctuary which successfully treats and rehabilitates many sick or injured animals. The park also offers tigers, zebras (who run around freely), and a big amount of African birds.
