What you will do

By taking part in a lion walk, or volunteering experience guests are dedicating funds and time to the project whilst learning about the species - and gaining life long memories!

It is important to note that all of Lion Encounter’s activities are operated for the purposes of the Rehabilitation and Release into the Wild program. We operate a staged rehabilitation program in which our activities are part of stage 1. The purposes of which are to provide our captive born cubs as many opportunities as possible to be in their natural environment. This means that we do not breed cubs or house any other species (other than volunteers!) for the purposes of attracting tourists.

Lion Encounter’s Lion Walk takes place approximately 10 minutes outside of Livingstone Town in the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park. This involves taking young lions for walks in the bush. Guests can accompany these walks, supervised by trained handlers and guides. We offer 2 time slots AM and PM. Pickups will start from 06:15 am to arrive at Lion Encounter by 07:00 am for our morning walks, and 14:15 pm to arrive at Lion Encounter by 15:00 pm for our afternoon walks .Guests arrive at our hospitality Boma where you will be greeted with light refreshments, whilst you are given an introduction to the program and a safety talk. You will then head out for the walk which will last approximately 1 hour and 15 mins. The walk is not vigorous and is a pleasant walk in which you may come across other animals such as impala, zebra, waterbuck, baboons, and buffalo amongst others. Cameras are welcome on the walk. You will depart the hospitality Boma at approximately 09:15 and will be back at your hotel by 10:00 and 17:15 to be back by approximately 18:00 for the afternoon walks.
