The Lion House is a unique rentable property in South Africa that allows tourists to spend their vacation in the middle of a nature reserve, surrounded by 77 adult lions.
Imagine going to sleep to the sound of lion roars, knowing that the only thing standing between you and dozens of predators is an electrified fence. If that sounds like the kind of thing you’ve always dreamed of, you’d better start saving for a stay at the Lion House, a special three-bedroom house located in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary in Harrismith, South Africa. It doesn’t feature many of the amenities you’d expect to find in a place that costs over $100 a night to rent, like TV or air-conditioning, but it does offer something very few, if any, other places around the world have – lions, 77 of them to be exact.
Built by GG Conservation, a non-profit, ethical nature reserve where no lion breeding or public interaction is allowed, the Lion House is one of the most amazing properties listed on Airbnb. It allows visitors to get as close to the over 70 majestic felines that call this place home without interfering with their lives, and feel good about themselves knowing that the whole booking fees directly benefit the lions.
“Guests can just live among the lions, observing first-hand the majesty of the lion species, Suzanne Scott, conservation director at GG Conservation, told Mail Online. “They can watch their natural behaviour, and see the interaction between the lions and their pride mates which is often very interesting, heart-warming and amusing. We are unique in that we are an ethical lion sanctuary with no breeding or public interaction allowed. But people can watch lions being lions very close up, whilst also knowing their booking fees to our non-profit organisation are helping to keep the lions safe and protected. It’s a win win!”
