Up Close and Personal

cover2000-12Munda Wanga Wildlife Park and Sanctuary is definitely open to the public.  The new lion exhibit, the sixth new enclosure of the year, will be completed and ready for business by the middle of December.   This new exhibit has been a long time coming for its resident nine lions but at least their relative freedom is close at hand.  The lions will be moved from their current cramped quarters to a two-acre enclosure, where they will have the space to roam and play in relative solitude.

Its principle sponsor, Chilanga Cement, and several other smaller contributors i.e. The American International School, and Munda Wanga’s very own Simba Fund have made this new enclosure possible.   Their support is very much appreciated by all at the Park.

It is important that the Park be financially self-supporting in the future, which is why a drive-thru enclosure has been built.  Such driving safaris are commonly found in many countries around the world including Zimbabwe and South Africa and it is hoped that such an adventure here in Zambia will become a huge money-spinner for the Trust.  Such funds will enable the Park to maintain and improve conditions for all the animals and will help secure their future.

With the assistance of Zungulila Zambia Car Hire, customers will be transported from Lusaka to Munda Wanga for an intimate lion viewing adventure and game drive through the grounds of the Wildlife Park.  Prices are US$30 per person, and will include a braai in the Botanical Gardens afterwards.  Minimum tours of 5 people per viewing (max: 25).  Please contact Sarah Wagner at Munda Wanga 278 456 or 278 529 or Caroline Linehan at Zungulila Zambia Car Hire 273686, 272934/37 or 784081/2/3.   Bookings will be taken from the 16th December and will be limited to one vehicle per evening.  So book now to avoid disappointment.

Munda Wanga would like to take this opportunity of thanking Kembe Cold Meat Storage and, Galaunia Farms for all of their assistance with meat donations for the Park’s very hungry, demanding carnivores.  Without such support our lions and tigers would not look as healthy as they do now.

So come see the pride of Munda Wanga at first hand as well as all the other new animals.  Rest assured that your support will help us continue the renovations and turn Munda Wanga into a Park to equal any in the world.
