The Seaview Predator Park is one of the Friendly City’s most prized attractions, as it combines so many irresistible things to see and do, within the borders of one easy-to-navigate park. It is situated in the suburb of Seaview, about 30 minutes from the airport and the beaches for which Port Elizabeth is known.
The Seaview Predator Park is home to a number of wild cats (including lions, tigers, cheetahs and panthers), zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, lynx, warthogs and an array of other antelope species. There are enclosures for the predators, which are spacious and surrounded with unobtrusive electric wiring so that visitors get the opportunity to be as close as possible to the writhing muscles and content growls of the animals without posing a threat to them (or vice versa). The herbivores roam freely in the rest of the park, through which self-drive tours can be conducted.
When there are lion cubs, visitors are able to meet, play with and cuddle them. Guided interactive experiences with other animals may also be on the cards. However, there are a number of conditions and determining factors to this (including the age and health of the animals).
There is a coffee shop and restaurant at the park, which is licensed and has a menu that is designed to appeal to children and adults alike. The views over the park or the ocean are absolutely gorgeous. The barbecue and picnic area is conveniently situated very close to the predator enclosures, for a real African experience.
Seaview is green and leafy, but is also situated right along the wild side of the PE coastline, giving visitors a fantastic idea of the Eastern Cape coastal scrub and the animals to which this is home. Keep an eye out for playful schools of dolphins that frequent these shores. Between August and December, whales are also often spotted in this part of the Indian Ocean, and these make for very rewarding sights and lasting memories.
