Helped with lions in the safest, family like setting

Kevin's priority is the quality of life for all the animals in the sanctuary. Everyone involved at the sanctuary puts their heart and soul into the daily care of these animals. Besides lions, there are also black, spotted leopards and hyenas. The staff treated us, the volunteers, with such patience teaching what needs to be done daily as well as sharing their knowledge of the country's culture and importance of the wildlife. Never have I felt so safe. Rooms with bath are very comfy. TV we watched in the common area where we also shared meals, always yummy!, and met in the morning to get a run down of the day. My only worry was my fear of spiders and only saw a couple who weren't the least bit interested in me! On the Sunday we were treated to lunch and a safari at a nearby game lodge. This is an experience of a lifetime!
