Lion Roars Culture

Our Culture

Our Culture is broken up into three groups:

3 Circles

1) Culture 

Our Culture can be further broken up into four categories. 

We Put our #Character First

Here at Lion Roars we celebrate the individual and promote attributes that are in line with putting one's character first. Here are some of these attributes that we believe a Lion Roars employee should embody.

  • Strong morals
  • Embrace their natural talents
  • Always choose kindness
  • Good manners
  • Creates "their" environment. (Be the change you want to see)
  • Always be presentable 
  • Follow your true north
  • Be understanding/ empathetic
  • Don't let the negative attitude of others influence you

We #Can Do

We help guests and each other whenever we can.

Like that one time our Ops Manager, Rodger, changed a guests car tyre 1) well, because he can be a good guy, but 2) mostly because it was Friday and he kinda checks out mentally and starts dreaming of his first Klippies from 2pm...

Our Can Do attitude means that:

  • We do what ever we can
  • We do it with passion
  • We are always positive
  • We are hands on
  • We are self motivated
  • We strive to be outstanding
  • And most importantly we have fun!

 We #Care Why

At Lion Roars we put a great deal of care into everything we do. No matter the size or the importance of the task we always make sure to care why we are doing it and who we are doing it for. We care about the standard of experience we are providing and care about those who receive it.

Simply put, we care about YOU! 

We are #Consistent 

  • We get the basics right
  • We always deliver our "A" game
  • We are courageous under pressure
  • We think, decide and resolve 

2) Sustainable Cutting Edge

  • We are a #Pride

We're big on celebrating our unique culture at Lion Roars, a philosophy largely driven by our teams at lodge level and in our head offices.

We believe in a work hard, play hard approach. That's why we roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty and also why we spend Friday's (and quite honestly any other excuse we can think of) enjoying each other's company with a couple of fine South African reds.  

  • We provide outstanding personal service

We always go out of our way to provide the very best personal service. We want to ensure that you have an experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life.

  • We innovate and grow

We aim to constantly learn and expand our abilities. We aim to ensure your experience is aligned with the high standards of excellence we strive maintain and grow.

3) Leadership

We #Protect The Pride

First and foremost, we are a pride. What does this mean to us? 

Well, we can only move as fast as our youngest cub and we're only as wise and as powerful as our Chief Lion (hey there, Kev!). 

We learn from example, and we can carve out great territories if we keep our pride in mind.

Quite simply, to us this means: 

  • We work as a team and support each other
  • We own the problem and solve it
  • We value character and each other
  • We're a family - together we are strong

We #Take Ownership

We take responsibly and ownership for every single thing we do. We hold ourselves accountable for your experience and always go the extra mile to ensure that experience is the very best.

We #Lift The Lid

We want our cubs to grow into the strongest and happiest versions of themselves. 


  • Allow the freedom to fail and learn
  • Give authority with responsibility
  • Mentor, encourage and guide
  • Provide the tools
  • Constantly create the learning experience
