    In May 2009 Park authorities relocated two male lions, brothers, onto the floodplains. It was a carefully planned operation. The month was chosen as there would be an abundance of prey and the males would be more likely to stay. The hope for the future is that once again lions will become a part of the Liuwa ecosystem and that a natural balance in the ranks of the predators will be restored. This image is from Zambezi.
