Embark on an African Lion Safari
Make your next visit to Burlington a family-friendly one. Our BEST WESTERN PLUS Burlington Inn & Suites is one of the few hotels near Canada's African Lion Safari, a great place take your kids or simply spend a leisurely afternoon. Located only a few kilometers south on ON-403, ON-6, ON-5, and ON-8, the African Lion Safari features driving safaris, boat cruises, and scenic railways amongst Africa's iconic animals.
Visit classic African inhabitants like the lions, giraffes, elephants, cheetahs, parrots, and more. Drive through large game reserves in your own vehicle or spot the animals from a legendary "African Queen" boat cruise. The reserve also offers educational animal shows, which include elephant round-ups and flying birds of prey. Finally, those traveling with kids love the Pets' Corner, where kids can come face to face with the animals themselves. The park is generally open from May to October.
Complement your visit through the African Lion Safari grounds with a trip to the site's shopping and dining. Enjoy exploring a safari bazaar gift shop, face painting and airbrush tattoos activities, and taking a photo safari. After a day full of fun, retreat to our comfortable rooms at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Burlington Inn & Suites. Start the day off with our free continental breakfast and come home to relax at our indoor, salt water pool, use our fast and free Internet, and enjoy a stress-free stay close to central Ontario attractions like Lake Ontario and Bronte Creek Provincial Park.
