Wow. I have just got back from the Lion Breeding Project at Antelope Park in Zimbabwe and Gemma at Amanzi Travel was spot on. Its the most amazing place, with the most amazing people and the amount of time you spend with the Lions is unreal! I was very nervous before I went as I had never done anything like this before. A bit of a mid life crisis trip! I must have driven Gemma mad as the closer it got the more I phoned her but she was fantastic. Patiently answering all my questions and concerns she became more of a friend and was always on the end of the phone.Nothing was too much trouble and the pre departure info is everything you need. This is one of Gemma's favourite projects and I completely understand why. Its a bit surreal having a Lion cub sat on your knee. Anyone thinking about doing this...STOP THINKING ABOUT IT AND JUST GET ON WITH IT , and definitely book it with Gemma at Amanzi Travel. Wish I had done it sooner.Already planning to go back to Zimbabwe and looking at other projects.Wouldn't change a thing.Thanks for an amazing experience.
