Thank you so much for this wonderful story. I am so grateful to all of the people who made this possible!

Very interesting! This will be exciting to watch. I cannot imagine relocating all those animals. What a project!

I’m fascinated by your story. I have visited several game reserves throughout Southern Africa over the past 20 years and have encountered changes in animal habitats. My last visit to Sabi Sand yielded great sightings of lion and leopard but the cheetahs had migrated further north. The flip side brought great sightings of a pack of wild dogs engaging in their mission to find breakfast- we watched it all come to fruition. Previously wild dogs had not been seen in this area.

Countries working together will insure that these natural wildlife areas, currently without animals, can be habituated with the big five along with their support system.

Thank you.

James quite interesting research and positive future expectations for the wildlife habitat.We appreciate the current efforts of all stakeholders to reintroduce animals to Zinave National p.We’re also hopeful that all the problems affecting wildlife existence and threatening the existence of wildlife in the area will be well managed by the government and the communities neighboring.A habitat is one of the most important key factors that ensure the efficient well being of our wildlife.Good Work James keep updating us on the progresses made.

Exciting prospects!

Fantastic news James and a great blog. I pray that the animals will thrive in their new habitat and they will be safe from all harm. Thank you.

Fantastic article James. Would like to see more of this topic publicized and views expressed. I am polarized between the constant drive to help animals and policitical and cultural challenges that come with opening frontiers with others who epitomize (as you put it) “the other side of the coin”.

Very well written article. Enjoyed all the insight and information that only a great guide can give us. Cannot wait to arrive later today. You guide on such an amazing place. Your guiding has filled our previous trips to londolozi with unforgettable moments.
