Welcome to the blog for the Dambwa pride; a pioneering group of lions. Raised in captivity and soon to be released, on 26th August 2011, into a purpose built area in the Dambwa forest, outside Livingstone in Zambia, they will have to fend for themselves in their natural environment.
This blog will bring you the most up to date information about the pride’s successes and failures as they adapt to life on their own. Over the coming days leading up to the release we will bring you information about the lions being released, the back story of the site itself and other information to help you understand why these lions are being released.
So we invite you to join us on this journey into the unknown.
