Zorgfontein Old Barn and Campsite is situated on the Northern border of the Botlierskop Private Game reserve, with the entrance just off the N2 in the Great Brak River region. Only 20 minutes from George Airport, the reserve boasts overwhelming views of the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as well as a beautiful landscape made up of breathtaking, green hills. The upmarket reserve offers you and up to five amigos or familia the once-in-a-lifetime experience to walk alongside the great King of the Jungle.
Citing their main goal as the breeding and protection of various game and antelope species, Zorgfontein has the animals’ best interests at heart and all are treated ethically, with the utmost care. Lions are one of South Africa's most majestic predators, and at Zorgfontein they are raised from cubs and are given the opportunity to experience the wild and pleasure of the farm. During your Lion Walk Experience you will interact with three young, playful lions. The walk will take approximately one-hour to complete, depending on how fast the lions are prepared to amble. Accompany these amazing animals on foot through the riverine vegetation and African Bush – no leashes or collars, just a natural African adventure.
Botlierskop Private Game Reserve is also home to a number of other species such as red and black impala, giraffe, kudu, eland, waterbuck, zebra, blue wildebeest, buffalo and bontebok. Located along the breathtaking Garden Route, the stunning reserve is also kitted with Luxury Tented Suites and a variety of fun activities for the whole family.
