“Lions hands-on” guest experience
Well, we finally captured our two young male Lions. After a few weeks hard work for all of us, Mike Toft, our veterinarian for this project, was able to dart both of them. They had to stay for three days in a boma (a large fenced in area to hold animals) for Mike to conclude blood tests for various diseases, which came all back negative = disease free Lions :-).
When the final day for their trip to the new home arrived 12 of Thanda’s guests were able to participate in a amazing “Lions hands-on” guest experience.
This is a picture record of this large cat departure!
Surprised and delighted to participate in this very special operation many commented on the sheer size of these beautiful cats.
The new owners are already in love with these beautiful cats. Who wouldn’t be? They were born and grew up on Thanda Private Game Reserve!
