Kwando Carnivore Project

The Angola boys as we call this coalition of male lions are now five years old. They were born to the Horse Shoe pride and we got to know them when they were less than one years old. After they dispersed from the pride, they moved into Angola as far north as the Luiana River in the Luengue-Luiana National Park. After the Horse Shoe pride shifted south and now live mainly in northern Botswana, the Angola boys return more frequently. One can occasionally hear them roaring during the night from across the Kwando River when they visit Horse Shoe, Long Lagoon and Chopper pad in Bwabwata NP. They sometimes move from this area to well within Angola overnight. We hope to recapture them in order to replace the GPS/Satellite collar so that we can further monitor their progress.
