Walking With lions - Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe # 3 by 

As part of a long term, four stage project to increase the lion population in Africa – numbers have decreased up to 80% in some areas – tourists are offered the opportunity to walk and interact with 9 and 18 month old lion cubs in the bush at a reserve outside Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. At the end of the fourth stage the lions are rehabilitated into the bush
They are not tame, and participants are given a half hour briefing before the ‘walk’… it is a thrilling experience and also offers the opportunity to photograph them from close quarters in their natural environment.

    have just spotted this amazing photography Sharon. Gather you did the walk?
    What a fantatsic experience. I grew up in Wankie, a town close to Victoria Falls as you’d know. Very fortunate & took it for granted back then. Lond to see the wild life again. Thiswould have to be one of the best photo’s I have ever seen. Well done, instant fav!

  • The walk was fantastic Sharon. …and thanks so much for the comment. You would be amazed to see the elephants walking through the centre of Vic Falls now!!!
