This February we saw Saba and Nairo two captive bred cheetah from our parks in Kent take their final steps into the wild after a long acclimatisation period in South Africa where they honed their natural instincts and learnt to hunt independently. Saba and Nairo now roam across 8000 hectares of wilderness at Mount Camdeboo Private Reserve where we hope they will sire a new generation of wild cheetah boosting the wild population across the country.
Gorilla Orphan Update from Congo
Orphans Loukoléla and Bomassa are growing well and like any youngster, learning through play on their forest walks with their carers. Loukoléla, the first gorilla confiscated in Congo for five years, came to us in November 2016 and was joined by Bomassa in January 2018. Both were severely depressed, very weak and suffering the effects of shock when they came to us. Now fully recovered they are learning how to live wild and free.
