2 Lionesses Try To Break In To The White Lion Project In South Africa!

Posted by Connor Whelan on Sep 12, 2016

The sign of a well-run conservation project is when the animals which aren’t under its care try to break in, and this is exactly what happened at the White Lion Conservation Project in South Africa!

After living in a neighbouring reserve for years, Khanyisa and Khanyezi the lionesses began to hang around the fence line of the White Lion Project. The two big cats continued to do this for months and months and this behaviour did not go unnoticed by the staff at the project.

After some deliberation and negotiations with the reserve just next door, the team at the White Lion Project managed to secure Khanyisa and Khanyezi’s dream move and after months of standing at the fence line looking in, they were finally able to join the other lions living in the safety of the project site!

White Lion and lioness

Nowadays, both Khanyisa and Khanyezi are an integral part of the projects aim to reinstate white lions into their once natural range across the Timbavati region of South Africa. The two lionesses have formed a new pride with the recently released male white lion Letaba, and once his brother Regeus is also released, these four lions will be the start of what is hopefully a long-standing pride of lions roaming the African grasslands once again!
