- This is your chance to see lions in their natural habitat without getting too far into Africa. These big wild cats have been provided with a high quality life in authentic surroundings. Drakenstein Lion Park is about 30 minutes drive from Cape Town, and offers picturesque views of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. A refreshment center and curio shop give visitors a chance to relax under a rustic thatch-roofed building with an open-air viewing deck. For a more exciting experience, a 150-meter catwalk extends right over the lion camps, offering a close encounter with these magnificent beasts.
