OMAR was born in Slovakia in 2011. He was purchased by a man who thought it would be nice to own a lion.

When he fled the country, Omar was left behind, in his small cage. The man’s father tried to sell him, which failed.

Omar lost a lot of weight and his cage didn’t provide shelter from the cold. When a group of animal activists noticed that Omar was for sale, they alerted Stichting Leeuw. In March 2015 the foundation rescued Omar, and restored him to good health in the shelter.

Omar relocated to South Africa in 2017 and now lives his best possible life, at The Lions Foundation, with his beautiful partner MAHLI.

Omar when we found him and Omar 1 year at St Leeuw 💖💟 ( we're the ones who found him back then 2015 ) St Leeuw was the only one who helped 🫶

Is he okay after she taught him that lesson a few months back? 😋

Ohh...my...I still know when I saw him for the first time at St.Leeuw .... I stood crying outside his enclosure.....now..? ...he survived and I'm só happy he's at your place....a very strong and beautiful guy.....<3

I started following Stichting Leeuw and you after I heard about Omar...he has come from far and he is absolutely gorgeously handsome! Keep up your good work 👊💪

Wat een enorm verschil en wat doen jullie goed werk. Omar is de reden waarom ik een leeuw " adopteerde" . Hij blijft mijn favoriete leeuw. Toppers zij jullie 👍

He is the King i adopted Omar.Thanks for saving him and giving a girlfrind Mahli💋 ♥️🦁♥️

Wat heeft Omar geluk gehad en wat had ik het met hem te doen. Gelijk geadopteerd en wat ben ik blij dat Omar zo gegroeid is. Mooie vent, hij heeft net als de andere leeuwen het dik verdiend om nu in Afrika te mogen vertoeven. 😻😍🥰

Gosh time flies he went from a walking skelet to a beautiful handsome boy, the love and care is outstanding of this already 11 year old boy and he even got a girlfriend 🥰 I hope he will live many more years in africa there where he belongs 🥰

Thank you so much for caring for him. He looks extremely happy 🤩

Majestic Omar

Omar what a handsome guy 😍😍❤❤ Thank you so much, ❤

Ik snap mensen niet, dat ze denken dat ze wilde dieren kunnen houden. Zij zijn de dupe als het niet meer leuk is, alsof het speelgoed is wat je weg kan doen. Dat is niet alleen met Omar maar ook met zoveel dieren. Maar ik ben ontzettend blij dat Omar goed terecht is gekomen bij Stichting Leeuw en dat hij een goed leven heeft.

He looks a right stunner. Such a beautiful lion. Xx

What a transformation 😍

Beautiful Omar ❤

Wat een verschil. Nu een mooi leven gelukkig 🍀🍀

Lieve Omar geniet van je nieuwe leven 🦁🦁

Wat een verschil, en wat is het toch een fantastisch goed doel dat ik steun 👏

I have to thanks all team

Wat een verschil in die twee foto's.. Blij dat het nu een stuk beter gaat...

Prachtig 😍❤️😍

Ach

Wat een verschil

Is gek om Omar daar te zien in plaats van Stichting Leeuw

SARA gave us quite the scare last week, when she clearly was not feeling well.

She didn't want to eat, had blood in her very loose stool and was hardly moving around.

We took her to Old Chapel Veterinary Clinic, where Dr Peter diagnosed her with a stomach ulcer. Obviously, the stress she has endured in her short life, had caught up to her.

We are ecstatic to report that after 11 sleeps at the clinic, our girl is back home and is her happy little self again!

NAJLA missed her a lot, and is happy to have her friend back home.

What do you think our magnificent TRISTAN is thinking about?

He was born in a German animal park, in 2011 and was only nine months old, when he was surrendered to Stichting Leeuw, in 2012.

He shares his habitat at The Lions Foundation, with the beautiful lioness NALA.

A lovely large natural space, where they are free to run, explore, play or just bask in sun as they please...
