Photo by @amivitale | Veterinarians wait for a lion to wake up from its sedation after being flown to Mozambique from South Africa and then driven to an enclosure. Twenty-four lions were moved in what was the largest conservation transport of wild lions across an international boundary in history. Decades of civil war and poaching had all but decimated the animals in this area, and careful management had brought back nearly all the other indigenous species—with the exception of these apex predators. So far all are thriving, and already over 30 cubs have been born since December. I covered this historic undertaking for my recent @natgeo story.

Photo by Ami Vitale @amivitale | After years of civil war in Mozambique, lions were all but lost in the Zambezi Delta region. In 2018, conservationists, landowners, donors, and the Mozambican government came up with an ambitious plan to add some two million acres to African lions’ range. They identified 24 healthy lions from reserves in South Africa and relocated them to central Mozambique to the Marromeu Game Reserve. In order to keep the genetic mix as wide as possible, the team sourced the lions from various reserves in South Africa and kept them all in a boma in KwaZulu Natal’s Mkhuze Game Reserve for three weeks to complete medical tests. Then they were sedated and put in two private planes for the journey to Mozambique.  Already, 20 cubs have been born since the lions’ release and it is estimated that that the population could grow to as many as 500 within 15 years.

Photo by Ami Vitale @amivitale | Lions’ eyes don’t close when the animals are sedated, so they’re fitted with hoods to protect their eyes from the light. The hoods also helps to keep them calm should the sedative start to wear off. This lion was part of an international transfer of 24 lions from South Africa, the largest lion relocation ever undertaken. After years of civil war in Mozambique, lions were all but lost in the Zambezi Delta region. Just a few decades ago, prides of lions once roamed the game-rich wetlands of the Zambezi Delta. But their numbers were decimated when their prey was overhunted during the drawn-out Mozambican civil wars, which raged from 1977 to 1992. Across Africa, a similar decline is occurring, with wild lion numbers dropping 42 percent in the last two decades, mostly as a result of habitat loss. This translocation has restored this apex predator to its ancestral lands and it is estimated that the population could grow to as many as 500 within 15 years. Already, 20 cubs have been born since the lions’ release.

Photos by Tim Laman @timlaman | Lions vs. Buffalo – Part II – Advantage Buffalo. We came upon a lion hunt that appeared to have gone awry. Lions were pursuing a herd of buffalo, but instead of isolating a buffalo to attack, a young male lion found himself surrounded by a herd of very angry buffalo that lashed out at him. For several minutes, we witnessed the incredible power of the buffalo, as they hooked the helpless lion with their horns and tossed him repeatedly into the air.  It was very apparent why buffalo are considered one of the most dangerous animals in Africa. We thought the lion was going to be killed on the spot, but after about ten minutes, the buffalo abandoned him and he staggered to the bushes. It was hard to imagine he would live for long.
At times these scenes were not pleasant to watch, I will admit. Nature can be harsh. But it was real, and it was amazing to witness the cycle of life in a place that is still wild. We need places like that on Earth, and it is good for us to visit them. As Tennyson wrote, on this day, we truly witnessed “Nature, red in tooth and claw.” #lions #buffalo #Tanzania #Ngorongoro  #natureredintoothandclaw

Photos by Tim Laman @TimLaman | Lions vs. Buffalo—Part I: Advantage Lions. In one incredible day on safari in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, we witnessed several hunts and attempted hunts between lions and buffalo. This attack began with two lionesses. The first grabbed the buffalo by the neck while the second tried to attack from behind. It seemed to be a stalemate for six minutes. Then reinforcements showed up in the form of the two males and other females from the pride. I captured the second image when the first male to arrive leaped onto the buffalo’s back. It didn’t take long after that for the buffalo to fall. Lions have to eat… Go to @TimLaman to see Lions vs. Buffalo—Part II: Advantage Buffalo.
