Wildlife on a Phinda Safari in South Africa, seeing Lions

Lion reintroduction research

Prior to &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve’s establishment in 1990, resident populations of lions were last recorded in Maputaland in 1938. Between May 1992 and January 2003, 15 lions were released into the Reserve. Research conducted to determine the success and failures of the reintroduction has recently been completed, providing valuable information to the conservation world and paving the way for more incredible victories.
