Lions, leopards and dogs

It’s been a carnivore carnival in the first season of newly built TenaTena Camp, operated by Robin Pope Safaris in South Luangwa. Lions and leopards are seemingly everywhere, and love is evidently in the air, with mating cats being spotted regularly, likely to result in a fresh crop of cubs down the line.

The camp caterer was unable to leave her room one morning as a male lion snoozed on her front porch - only in the Luangwa Valley can you blame a lion for making you late for work!

The Zambian Carnivore Project team recently had an unexpected guest. A curious young female leopard sauntered around camp, while the team looked on in awe. ZCP are based at Nkwali and have been busy with the annual Carnivore Week, where guests experience conservation first hand as part of the ZCP team, including tracking the large predators.

Wild dogs have also been in evidence, with a pack of 15 working the Park near TenaTena recently.
