We are not open to the public and as a working sanctuary, Andi and staff are busy with management duties, however, if you book in advance, Andi will give you a guided tour at the sanctuary.
Duration of a day tour is approximately 1.5 - 2 hours. We prefer that you book at least a week ahead.
Any donation is appreciated.

For the quiet, respectful nature lover, we offer a Unique Guest Experience where you can overnight in Andi Rive's private camp.
Andi and her team live in tents alongside of 4 lions in a shady grove situated on the side of a rocky mountain.
Join them for sundowners on a boulder overlooking the Eastern Free State's beautiful valleys and mountains followed by a braai around their camp fire.
Waking up to the sound of lions roaring and birds chirping may be an everyday event for Andi Rive and team, but it is something truly special for the rest of us. The freshness of the air and the uniqueness of the setting never fail to inspire one. Sleeping in comfortable tents alongside of lion enclosures is a treat. Chatting to Andi at the fire is a privilege.
Night sounds include jackal, mountain reedbuck, baboon, lions, owls and night jars. There are literally thousands of birds including a breeding pair of Black Eagles and a colony of Cape Vultures.
Arrive at 2pm-4pm for a lion tour with Andi
after which you will head up to the camp to meet the lions there,
relax a bit, go for a walk to Prayer Rock for sunset and then back to the camp fire.
Check out is at 10am
R1750 per person (of which 50% is a direct donation towards the upkeep of the lions)
To book please email Andi Rive at firstname.lastname@example.org
