If you want an innovative place for a vacation, which is definitely not like anyone else, we have the perfect destination for you …
GG Conservation in Harrismith, South Africa isn’t for those with a weaker heart, but is intended for lovers of genuine and true adventure. In addition to the fact that this place is a potential villa where you can stay away, it is home to as many as 77 lions. Lion House, as it is called, is a top-class three bedroom house, perfect for wildlife lovers.
Here you can enjoy the spacious open yard every morning with a cup of coffee and sounds made by lions, while the evenings are reserved for barbecue or lying next to the fireplace. Born and raised in Leeds, Suzanne Scott, conservation director at GG Conservation, says: “You are very close to the lions, less than one meter away when standing next to the fence. From the staircase, the porch or the yard, you are two meters away. It’s like living between them, as if you were part of a pack. Certainly, the best part is listening to the sound of lions in the evening, which really inspire you with your power and strength.
Of course, security is the highest priority here, so electric fences surround the building. “The lions are located in their camps, behind strong fences, all done according to standards and laws, “says Suzanne.
Also, there is an electric fence above all camps, which was done with caution because of the safety of the lions, as they can cross the fence if they wish.
In addition to the lions, there are also wild antelope, zebras, ostriches, impales and other animals that can only be seen here.
With a small additional fee, you can also enjoy a walk through the nearby guided tour.
We must note that GG Conservation is a non-profit organization, so that any holiday booking here creates a profit that is directed to humanitarian organizations dealing with the protection of lions.
We recommend this place to all those who love these big cats.
