A wildlife expert has said the three roaming lions spotted in Kasungu recently might have come from Zambia and have gone back.
Africa Parks chief executive officer Patricio Ndadzera said Kasungu National Park and Nkhotakota Game Reserve have no lions at the moment.
“We take it that these three lions are a family. They might have come here in Malawi in search of a place to stay but discovered that most places are densely populated and are now gone back to where they came from,” he said.
Director of Parks and Wildlife Brighton Kunchedwa concurred with Ndadzera, saying game rangers who were deployed to look for the animals have not spotted them.
“The lions might have gone back to their base. It is true we don’t have lions in Kasungu National Park and Nkhotakota Game Reserve,” he said.
Africa Parks say they will bring lions and other big five animals in Nkhotakhota Game Reserve which they are running.
They have since brought 500 elephants in the game reserve in an exercise Prince William witnessed sometime ago.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
