Saved from Culling: A Lioness Relocation

WeWild Africa is proud to announce the successful relocation of two lionesses, Nora and Kibibi, from Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve to Babanango Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal. We partnered with Babanango Game Reserve, Mount Camdeboo Game Reserve, and the Bateleurs in translocating the lions.

The operation formed part of a larger restocking initiative at Babanango where WeWild Africa sent two additional lions from Kwandwe and elephants from Addo Elephant National Park and Tembe Elephant Park.

The lion population at Mount Camdeboo has increased to a point where they are over capacity and to avoid culling the lions, Dereck Milburn from WeWild Africa engaged the different partners to reduce the population and provide a tangible solution. The project was co-funded by Over and Above Africa.

The relocation of Nora and Kibibi is an important step in enhancing the genetic diversity of the lion population at Babanango Game Reserve.
