Last week, the research team on our Lion Rehabilitation Project, Victoria Falls (Zambia) determined that the Dambwa females have formed a stable and self-sustaining pride. As such, they decided that the time was right to introduce the very first male: Zulu...
Just before 1pm on Sunday 11th
December 2011 Zulu walked through the release site gate of his own accord and into a new life as head of the Dambwa pride. Since the 26th
of August, our 6 females have been living as a female only pride, giving them the chance to settle and explore the area. Zulu joined the females at a recently killed carcass (that he had stopped off to kill on the way to the release site!) where he sat patiently to one side whilst the girls started to tuck in; his mane lying flat under the weight of water from an almost unimaginable amount of rain. We wish the now complete pride every success! You can keep up to date with the latest exciting news by checking out the official blog of the Dambwa pride.
