Walking with Lion (cubs).

Retirement and beyond

While travelling in Zimbabwe, we visited Antelope Park, which runs a programme called ALERT – African Lion and Environmental Research Trust, where orphaned lions are cared for, and may eventually be released back into the wild.    We had the most fantastic experience of going for a walk in the bush with these 8 month old cubs, and their handlers.  These cubs look upon the handlers as their ‘parents’ and respond to their commands, and before we went out on the walk, we were given a talk on the ‘do’s and dont’s’ of walking with wild animals.

 

It was a pretty daunting list..Do Not Panic…Stand your Ground (Really – with a lion chasing me?)   Do Not Run… but once out in the bush, it was all good, they are pussycats really – of the large variety!  We were even able to pose for photos with the cubs…
