While waiting for the 13 lions to arrive, we provided a home for these 41 donkeys! 🍀

They were rescued from slaughter and the donkey skin trade by Karoo Donkey Sanctuary and have come to retire here. They live on a 40 hectare fenced area of bushveld which resembles their natural habitat. They are loving it so far at Schrikkloof! 🐾

The Lions Foundation

Can you guess what this is? 🤔

It’s a water bassin which is located in every lion camp to be able to always provide them with fresh water.

South Africa is currently in phase 3 of the lockdown and there is no sign of the borders being opened for tourism any time soon. In the meantime, the camps are making great process!

It’s been a while, but here’s an update from us at The Lions Foundation! First of all, we hope everyone is safe during the lockdown - South-Africa is also currently in a lockdown due to COVID-19. Secondly, we proudly present to you the layout for the upcoming new homes for the lions!
The enclosures will be round and over one hectare in size. Attached are separation enclosures of 10 by 10 metres and inside enclosures (feeding rooms) where the lions can be closed in if necessary. Around the enclosure area is extra fencing, for extra security. We will have a completely new building (‘coldroom’), with a huge freezer, fridges, kitchen and storage room. The enclosures will be more open than the current ones, which allows the lions to see more. It is also more like their natural habitat. They can also see each other from afar. This makes their homes more natural, they have more enrichment and it gives the security guards a better overview. All enclosures will have a pond which is automatically filled when the animals drink from it or if a lion (Isolde) goes to play in the pond.
We are anxiously awaiting the final permits. As soon as the lions have arrived, volunteers will be very welcome! For more information about volunteering, please see The Lions Foundations website www.thelionsfoundation.com
