They are doing a fantastic job with the sick animals.
Even driving through the reserve to the lodges was beautiful and interesting. We saw lots of animals and birds and the view of the hills was stunning. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and shown to our spacious and spotless accommodation. The tv had lots of channels and the free wifi was good. We ate in the restaurant on both nights of our stay and the food was freshly prepared and tasty and the service was excellent. The game drive with Alvin was great. The charity does excellent work and watching the videos really explains the need for the sanctuary they provide for the big cats. Everyone at Lionsrock is passionate about their cause and work hard to please their visitors and care for the animals. There was a sense of peace and tranquility about the place and we walked on the hiking trail and sat by the pond bird spotting. It was idyllic. Well done to all the staff for the work you do, the comfortable accommodation you provide and for the warmth in your hearts.
This lodge is absolutely amazing.the views are fantastic and the amount of wild animals roaming around is great.the staff we incredibly help full and very friendly. Perfect venue for a relaxing weekend away and the food at the restaurant is superb. Would highly reccomend it!!!
Everything, great setting,peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, awesome friendly staff, the friendly dogs, the roaring of the lions, Lions Rock will definitely see us again
Your warm welcomed and your waiters is perfect
Price, Staff ,setting, everything. But most importantly what the sanctuary is doing for abused animals,giving them a wonderful home to see out their days.
I loved the place itself for the price! Nice, large room. No air conditioner though but it cools off at night. Having a drink with Adrian at the bar was a lovely experience.
The very gravelly road. I had a cheap rental and ended up with a minor flat on the way out. Took me an hour from the main road.
Solitude location for a couple, awesome people, great service, delicious food, reasonable prices, a lot of extra curricular activities, amazing sounds from the lions & hyena's at night. will go again definitely! !!
Nothing what so ever.
The lions roaring as we were falling asleep was magical. A wonderful place to stay and a great cause.
Everything was done to make our stay interesting and comfortable
Nol airconditioners in the bedrooms, it was very hot.
the friendly always always helpful staff, the great work they're doing in the sanctuary.
There was nothing not to like.
The food was excellent and the game drive was very informative and the ranger was well informed. We were impressed with the work that is being done there with animals
If the road good be tarred it would be an advantage. according to info on the web a hairdryer is available in the room but there was none in the room. Fortunately my wife took her's along. Shade nets would also be an advantage
Lionsrock is a sanctuary, an oasis for abused and mistreated cats from around the globe. the people clearly have a passion for what they do, and the big cats are such an experience to see up-close on a viewing drive. i am in awe of how wonderful this organization is!
Don't expect fancy frills, the rooms are clean, well(ish) maintained and the limited DSTV channels will force you out of your room to enjoy the nature! The rooms all feature ample heating, but on hot days you don't want to be in there - all in all it's a great value for money stay, and knowing that you are supporting the Four Paws and Lionsrock initiative is well worth any of the minor inconveniences
Clean room, good bed, very friendly staff. Magnificent view. Game drive on own property tot abused lions and tigers was impressive. Good WIFI network.
Such a great setting ,that accompanied by good quality food ,great staff doing great things not just for the guests ,but also for the sanctuary of the big cats
Some day visitors playing load music from their cars ,but it didnt last and it was new years day
The gardens needed a good clean. The double bed in unit 1 needs a new mattress.
The game drives were amazing, enjoyed time with the cats.
Checking in was a nightmare. Got to the place at 5pm (26th Dec) and had confirmed my booking in Sept. They made us sit for an hour while a room is being prepared, then upgraded us to a better room--10minutes into this room we were told that they made a mistate and we need to move to another room. We were travelling with a 6 months baby and two small kids. This was quite frustrating.
1.Nothing was too much trouble, from comfort, food ect. 2. Four Paws was very educational and an eye opener to all that went on the game drive, the game driver had so much passion for his work. 3. Ethical, kind and understanding owners. 4. A must to visit, peaceful. 5. Thank you to all that made our stay so comfortable.
1. Not enough pressure in the shower for a good flow of water.
Listening to the roaring of lions
I ordered room service,didn't like the food at all as it was not properly prepared.
Lions Rock Lodge is a natures valley as well as as a sanctuary at the same time. Although the rescued animals are still in captivity as they cannot be released into the wild again, Lions Rock Sanctuary is providing a save haven to all the animals. The animals are all very well cared for in every way. The Lodge is very well managed with friendly staff and the restaurant serves delicious food. Value for Money!
The cold water in the swimming pool!
Everything. Lionsrock is absolutely fantastic and I will always remember our four night stay here. We were a group of 11 with 4 children, parents and grandparents and every one of us had a great time. The best parts of our stay were the views, the purpose of Lionsrock to rescue lions, the hikes, game drives and swimming pool. Self-catering + breakfast included is a great combination. The staff are so friendly and lovely, we felt sad to leave.
Nothing at all. Highly recommended
This is my 3rd time here, and I gave the venue a good rating the last time. As usual, some staff members stand out with their service and friendliness, its a beautiful place, and not to far from out, but...........................
I dislike reviews that berates venues for minor little issues for the sake of moaning but, sadly, I'm not coming back to this venue!. I come here for the view and the isolation. Unfortuanately, the venue doesnt seem to know what type of clientele it wants to have. When a venue is booked for a wedding, as well as a corporate function, let other guests know in advance, or close off bookings. If I had known in advance about this, there would be no way that I would of booked. To have wedding guests standing on your verandah shouting and laughing all afternoon and evening is certainly not enjoyable. Added to this ,I have had the use of the same room (No8) on 2 of the occasions, and the shower runs lightly all night!!! I brought it to the front desks attention again, 3 months later, still the same. A poor coffee station that was not refilled, no towels except for a hand towel!! So with all the noise from the functions and a constant dripping sound through the night, I have to make the decision that its time to find another place in a very beautiful part of the country!
Accomodation was not luxury, but good and clean.
Lions in cages.
There are too many good things to list so here are just a few: the lodge itself is traditional and beautiful and run by a team of most friendly, welcoming and professional people you will ever come across. It has a beautiful restaurant, lovely fully stocked bar, plenty of seating area, a stunning clean swimming pool and of course scenery to die for with an abundance of wildlife. Not only do you get to experience seeing the big cats, buck and other wildlife, but you are contributing to a most worthy and admirable cause, supporting the rehabilitation of our most precious wildlife. A must for anyone wanting a true African experience, you will not be disappointed. The game drive was fantastic, Alvin our guide was extremely knowledgeable and a really nice fella. Our room (no 22 and 23) was clean, spacious and most comfortable, our bed was the most comfortable I have slept in in a long while and is on 5 star level. The pillows were amazing! I will return again, even if it is just to come back to Lions Rock for a night. The work they do is over and beyond and if it wasn't for people and places like this we wouldn't have the beautiful wild animals we see in books anymore. Highly recommended!
The setting. Very up close encounters with all the animals
The gravel roads are very poor
