  • Hello Ukutula, I was in South Africa in September and spent a day at Ukutula (lion interaction). It was a lovely day.

  • I have been to Ukutula twice. I have a great love for animals and I am against the killing of any animal for sport. I realize that there are various opinions about holding cubs or walking with the lions. I want to commend the owners of Ukutula for raising the awareness of the beauty of lions and cheetahs. Maybe if young boys and girls have a hands-on experience with a lion they will be less likely to grow up wanting to kill one. The owners are ethical and good people. Thank you for the goodness you are doing. Many thanks.

  • Everything about our day trip to Ukutula was wonderful. The guides were informative teachers about the animals and their environment ... they explained well the research being done to help eradicate TB among the wildlife as well as feline AIDS—At least 5 universities are partnering with Ukutula for this positive goal. We witnessed the letters and paperwork stating the positive environment in which these animals are cared for. They are carefully followed when leaving this place to be sure they do not become gaming animals or treated improperly. Loved our experience and am grateful for what they are accomplishing. The tourism portion helps to provide the proper care for the animals so proper research can be done ...This is good. There's a Volunteer program where volunteers from all over the world spend time serving the animals and staff. I highly recommend.
