Pirates, you know we enjoy showcasing truly awesome - or should we say roarsome? - locations around the world. But for those with a conscience for the creatures we co-habit the earth with, this stay could be a real source of pride.
An ethical organisation in Harrismith, South Africa is offering guests the chance to stay in The Lion House, a rental located within a lion sanctuary. Homing no fewer than 77 lions, visitors can fall asleep to the roars of their neighbours surrounding the property behind an electric fence - and feel pretty good about theirselves while doing so.
The incredible property was built by GG Conservation, an ethical non-profit nature reserve in which no lion breeding or public interaction is permitted. It enables visitors to get close to the majestic cats without interfering with their livelihood, encouraging an education like no other.
"Guests can just live among the lions, observing first-hand the majesty of the lion species" Suzanne Scott, director of GG Conservation, told The Mail Online.
"They can watch their natural behaviour, and see the interaction between the lions and their pride mates, which is often very interesting, heartwarming 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 knowing their booking fees to our non-profit organisation are helping to keep lions safe and protected. It's a win-win!"
Aside from the property's inhabitants, of course, perks of the rental also include an indoor log fireplace, a fully-equipped kitchen, a plush master bedroom and a BBQ grill.
You can stay in the Lion House from just £82 per night, which to us sounds like a steal for living like the real Lion King.
