Antelope Park

Its range of accommodation and quality facilities make it the perfect destination for holiday makers, conferences, educational school trips, romantic get-aways, team building or leadership camps and day trips.

About Antelope Park

Antelope Park is home to a whole host of activities which draw people to visit above any other reason. The Park has a team of experienced guides, who can conduct game drives, horse rides, bush walks, boat cruises, bird watching and much more.

Antelope Park offers more than the ordinary Game Park though. It is also home to the most iconic animal in the world, a symbol of Africa, the King of Beasts, the Lion.

The lions are not free-roaming in the Park, nor do they live there for no good reason. These lions are at the forefront of the effort to ensure the survival of their species.

Antelope Park works together with the African Lion & Environmental Research Trust (ALERT) to battle the rapid decline of the lion species through the African Lion Rehabilitation and Release into the Wild Program.

Over 20 activities are on offer to guests at Antelope Park and no matter which guests participate in, they are making important contributions towards ensuring the future of the African Lion.

The money generated from these activities go back into the rehabilitation program, and the time the lions spend in the bush on the Lion Walks or Night Encounters provides them with invaluable experience when it comes to them perfecting there hunting skills.
