New lions for Madikwe Game Reserve

New Lions for Madikwe Game Reserve

This week we welcomed two male lions to Madikwe Game Reserve, coming from Tswalu Game Reserve. The vet flew to Tswalu, where the lions were darted and loaded on the plane and safely escorted to Madikwe, where they will spend 6-8 weeks in the boma to get used to their new environment.

These two new additions will assist in increasing the genetic viability within the lion population of Madikwe. This expedition was proudly sponsored by the Morukuru Goodwill Foundation.
