Where Would You Like to Stay?


Lion Encounter

Thrill-seekers won’t want to miss this “up-closer” encounter with these incredible creatures. You’ll meet with a trained wildlife keeper, learn about a lion's behavioral training, hear fun facts about the stunning African lions of Nemacolin — including Kanu, Kuvo, and Kiwi — and observe a safe feeding from a keeper.

Every encounter will be unique, depending on the personality our lions wish to display on your tour, yet you’ll come away awed by the size and power of these intelligent predators.
