Lion Encounter-Victoria Falls

I know it's not politically correct, or morally right to make these lions acclimated to humans and I'm sure not much goes to conservation, but has anyone done this excursion out of Victoria Falls? Sounds so exciting but soooo wrong!!

WOW! I was just in Livingstone and was told there haven't been any 'cats' in the area for many years - I wonder where these cubs came from?? Here's my opinion - I bet it isn't as exciting as it sounds, if these lions are very acclimated to humans. I guess it does sound a little 'wrong', but there are other similar activities in Vic Falls, such as an 'elephant-back safari' which is really a tame ride followed by some petting. If you've travelled all the way to Africa, the game drive experiences can't be beat. There's nothing like 'wild' lions prowling around your vehicle in the dark while hunting. I'd love to know what this activity was like if you decide to do it!
