After we lost Zella to lion a few months ago, we now have a new leopard female.
We have acquired a new leopard female, 2-3 years from North West Parks Board. She is currently in the predator boma as part of her habituation and to remove her homing instinct. We currently have Ziklas, and another male resident on the DGR – we usually only see him from an aerial view. The new female addition will contribute to the possible breeding of leopard in the DGR.
We will update you once she has been released!
We are also in the process of acquiring a new lion male of about 6 years from Samara Private Game Reserve. Once he arrives, he will also be placed in a predator boma to remove his homing instinct. When the process has been finalised dates of release will be communicated. This new male addition is to improve the genetic diversity of the DGR lion population.
