Guests are picked up from their respective hotel/lodge and transferred to the estate. Upon arrival, tea, coffee and cordials are served – after which the guide will give a short introductory talk on the African Encounter Lion Rehabilitation Program and a brief on all safety aspects.

The guide and handlers will answer any questions as well as provide knowledge on lions and the environment in general. The morning Safari ends with a Full English Breakfast on the deck at lion encounter estate reception area. The Mid-morning Safari ends with a good choice of snacks and drinks and the afternoon safari will end with a good choice of snacks and drinks.
