In Victoria Falls Feb 5th 2008 was the first time I ever walked with a lion, it was the most scariest thing I have ever done so far, but I survived. Here I encountered Amandla, Chando & Chabalala (Chabs), they were called the 3AC's.
Amandla was 18 months, Chando & Chabs were 17 months.
There were another sets of Lions called the L's, Lina & Lungile they were 12 months old.
Lungile tured out to be a bad lion but a very skillful hunter as for Lina she already shown that when I was there.

While I was there I got the opertunity to visit the Lion breeding center in Gweru.
Also I got to go to Hwange National Park & Matopo National Park, this is a good opertunity to see different kinds of animals. I went with some other volunteers and at this one place called Miambo have the best cook ever. If you stayed here I don't think you would ever leave.

This trip has it's ups and downs, but mostly I can only remember the ups.
The people here at Masuwe, where the lions stay, are like my 2nd family I really feel like I belong here.
