There is a unique rentable property in South Africa that allows tourists to spend their holiday in the middle of a nature reserve, surrounded by 77 adult lions, Odditycentral.com reports.
The guest house, according to reports, is a special three-bedroom house located in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary in Harrismith, South Africa.

The Lion secured guest house was built by GG Conservation, and is one of the most amazing properties listed on Airbnb.
It is a non-profit, ethical nature reserve where no lion breeding or public interaction is allowed.
Tourists get the rare opportunity to get very close to the 77 dreadful lions without being devoured as it would have been the case under normal circumstances.
The only barricade that serves as a covering for the tourists is an electric fence.
In case you were wondering how much such a highly secured guest house would cost, reports say though the house is not the luxurious one, it is for $104 per night, and can accommodate about six occupants.
It does not have TV or air-conditioning to give you the comfort you get in any ordinary guest house, but the feeling of spending time in the middle of harmful but restrained carnivorous animals is more fulfilling.
But what if the Lions go berserk and pounce on the tourists one day? Well, Suzanne Scott, conservation director at GG Conservation allayed that fear in an interview with Mail Online.
He said: “Guests can just live among the lions, observing first-hand the majesty of the lion species

“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!
“You are never more than 5 metres away from a lion at Lion House!!
“You are very close, less than one metre from a lion when stood at the fence. From the step, porch or patio of the house you are two metres away.
It makes you feel that you are almost living among them, as part of the pride. The best part is being able to hear the nightly roars of 77 lions in surround sound, it is truly awe-inspiring to listen to.”
The next time you visit South Africa, you might want to look out for the Lion guest house for optimum security. Your prayer however, should be that lights don’t go out, or the roars of the Lions amidst blackout will leave you sleepless.
