Antelope Park, situated on the outskirts of Gweru, is one rare animal conservancy where visitors are given the opportunity to walk with lions through the bush.
The park, which is on a 3 000-acre expanse to the south west of Gweru has become a popular spot due to its unique activities, which include mingling and mixing with lions.
“Our activities include walking with lions through the bush, watching as they stalk and play among one another, bonding with their pride mates and learning about their natural habitat,” said Antelope Park marketing and public relations manageress, Judy Goddard.
“You are also able to take a tour of the lion sanctuaries, as Antelope Park is home to the African Lion and Environmental Research Trust (Alert) lions, all of which is part of efforts to protect and reintroduce the African lion to the wild,” she said.
“We also offer exclusive night encounters, which is an extraordinary experience of being able to watch the lions hunting in their natural environment. You do this from the safety of our safari vehicles.”
