Seaview Game and Lion Park

The Seaview Game and Lion Park just outside Port Elizabeth has become a institution over the years with many people who went there as children now taking their children. Seaview Game Park's main activity is a breeding project for white lions, although they also have normal lions as well as tigers and a number of game species which ca be seen as one drives through the park. On a Sunday at 12 noon they feed their lions in the main viewing enclosures and visitors can see this activity from just beyond the fence. One of the main attractions at the park is the fact that visitors can go and and spend time with the parks lion cubs (obviously where there is lion cubs). Normally people are allowed in with them from about 6 to 8 weeks of age (see here). When they get to about 10 months (as these above are), then they will only take people in when the cubs are very lazy or has just been fed. Its not that they are really dangerous yet, its more a case of them getting a bit rough when they want to play with you.


  1. Quite interesting this post on the park I enjoyed it

  2. Oh, I love that shot - and what a fabulous experience! I've been to stroke the cheetahs at the Cango Wildlife Ranch in Oudtshoorn twice, but a cheetah is a very different proposition to a lion! On one visit they had white tiger cubs there too that looked abotut the same size as these and you could also go in and touch them - but as you say, they looked of a size where they still wanted to play but did not know their own strength!
