After 15 hours of flight, the lions arrived at the refuge of Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary, an area of 5 thousand hectares in the savannah closed to the public in South Africa. On these lands, they will receive medical assistance, food and special care.
“They have made a long trip but they are surprisingly calm. Some of them were agitated during the trip and they have some minor injuries, but nothing serious, “said Savannah Heuser, an employee at the shelter.
They will be able to regain strength and slowly acclimatize to their homeland, the land of lions.
