Cubtime in Johannesburg
Lions lay still for 22 hours a day. Luckily lion cubs are a different story. Driving through the Lion Park in Johannesburg we were in feet of a mama lion and her cubs playing tag, hide and seek, and king of mama lion. We circled 5 times to watch the little guys, mesmerized and laughing the whole time. Lion couples are also an exception to the lazy lion rule, engaging in intercourse every 10 minutes. We saw a lion couple playing hard to get before a little sexy business. Time stood still as we watched giraffes gracefully stride across the fields, zebras buck and prance with humor, cheetahs relax with a regal and disinterested pose, guinea hens scamper through the grasses with gossiping secrets, and wild dogs sniffing every wind with wisdom of the grassy land. Did I mention you get to pet some lion cubs? Winner.

Hey there!
Lion Park in Johannesburg is simply awesome. You get a close up experience with animals like giraffes, ostrich and monkeys. They even have a 'touch a cub' area.

Irresponsible Tourism
Check out a recent AFAR article which mentions these types of places should be avoided: www.afar.com/magazine/the-9-most-environmentally-harmful-things-about-travel-and-what-to-do-instead. A quick internet search will also reveal connections to the canned hunting industry. Here's a link: www.krugerpark.co.za/krugerpark-times-e-1-canned-hunting-a-public-responsibility-25027.html
