Green green grass of home

Their time has come…

86 copyIt was a long drive and stressful for us and the lions at times but it was well worth it. Finally the time has come for them to be released into their enclosures, stretch their legs and step foot on African soil for the first time.  They will spend the rest of their days in the African sun and their nights sleeping under the African sky which is the way it 104 copyshould be!

This was a very rewarding and emotional experience for Sue and I and many others of course.

Jora and Black are now at ‘Home’ and will be looked after by Glen Vera, Born Free’s head carer at the sanctuary and Johan Joubert, Shamwari’s amazing Wild Life Vet who travelled out to Bulgaria to collect them. The most amazing experience – for animal lovers, bunny huggers, whatever you want to call us – it doesn’t get better than this!
