Rhino and Lion Game Reserve and Park
Situated northwest of Johannesburg within the beautiful Kromdraai Conservancy and the Cradle of Humankind. The Rhino and Lion game park is a privately owned, non-subsidized game reserve, covering approximately 1600 hectares of typical Highveld grassland founded in 1985 with the introduction of a pair of white rhinoceros.
Today the game park houses over 700 head of game from 25 different species, including lion, white lion, cheetah, wild dog, hippopotamus, warthog, buffalo, wildebeest, crocodile and ostrich.
The antelope species include springbok, waterbuck, red hartebeest, blesbok and eland. There is also 200 species of birds. A “vulture restaurant” has been opened in the game reserve, often catering for as many as 200 vultures.
Although not indigenous to South Africa, Siberian and Bengal Tigers are successfully being bred in a separate breeding project at the reserve.
All the predators are enclosed separately from other wildlife and are thus fed but this does not detract from the overall experience.

Wildlife experience, as compared to the Kruger or Pilanesberg
A true wild life experience is seeing Lions in a game park, as Pilanesberg or Kruger – Lions in the natural bush where they belong.
The Rhino & Lion Nature Game Reserve/Park, as with the Lion Park tour, is not intended to replace a Pilanesberg or Kruger National Park Safari but provides an opportunity to experience lions and wildlife in a manner that you may not have been able to do before.
Ekala Eco Tours offer tours to the Kruger National Park and Pilanesberg game park.
Handled lions cant be introduced into the wild.
The intention of the Rhino and Lion Park is not to reintroduce lions into the wild but rather to offer an educational experience. Captive lions have, although very limited, a place in conservation.
If your time is short, perhaps we can still however offer you a Pilanesberg Safari – Pilanesberg Game Park
