Having just arrived late afternoon yesterday but what a great way to start our visit to Victoria Falls! The Lion Encounter still receives a 4.5 out of 5 rating based on 285 reviews on TripAdvisor. They’ll get another raving review from us!

Breakfast was included and getting to know everyone on vacation.

Bacon! Who doesn’t like bacon? Actually, I had hoped the lion cubs wouldn’t smell it on me.

My favorite expression the lion cub made when his sibling was nipping at his leg for fun.

Walking amongst these lion cubs was so amazing and I’m glad this Lion Encounter has a lion release program.

I think our guides said these lion cubs were about 6 months old. They’re huge!
