Are there going to be lions in the Mountain Zebra Park and if so where will they be relocated from? I hope the picnic sites will stay open as they are so nice to sit outside of the car and enjoy nature, apart from the monkeys trying to steal your food.

I don't see why they'd close the picnic spots no picnic spot is closed in the kruger nor is their fences around them and theirs and overabundance of lions their

Good Evening All,

I am planning a trip to MZNP during this winter and was wondering if the Lions will be there yet ?

Thanks

Andrew

A very warm welcome to you, Andrew :D

Its the first time I have heard about the Lions, or proposed Lions. :hmz: Maybe some news items that I have missed.

Why don't you do Cheetah tracking while you are there? One of my most memorable experiences.

Thanks for the welcome and idea, :D
I was lucky enough to see a cheetah with kill - last year while going on a night drive. :dance:
While reading up on the corridor project I came across a website which stated that lions were to be introduced sometime in the next couple months.
However I am wary to believe everything I see on the internet.

Enjoy your day further

Hi guys

Can we maybe find out if this is true? That blog is from the latest Wild Magazine which I usually consider a reliable source.

Also, the blog mentions Megan Taplin as the Park Manager. I might have missed it before, but was this a promotion for Megan, in which case Congratulations are in order :congrats:

There will be some exciting news coming out of Mountain Zebra National Park shortly - possibly within the next two months. :D Be sure to keep a look out on the forums.
