Lion Walk

Owned by African Encounter (same project as the one in Gweru), there are 10 walking lions at Mosi-au-Tunya NP so using my contacts from Antelope Park I secured a day with the lions in Zambia. It’s a very different set-up walking in a National Park instead of a private Game Park and our walk with 3 nine month old cubs was cut short when the trackers ahead of us came across a very agitated, snare injured male Buffalo on the rampage. A hasty retreat back to the lodge meant we spent a terrible 3 hours walking, sitting, feeding and playing with 2 four month old cubs instead! Pure heaven.
