Twenty Four Lions

On August 5, 2018, the largest movement of wild lions across an international boundary in history occurred as Twenty Four Lions were re-introduced to a 2.5 million-acre habitat in the Zambeze Delta of Mozambique. The environment, once decimated by civil war and poaching, has benefited from 24 years of dedication to sound conservation practices. However, in spite of these efforts, the lion population has struggled to recover. Lions have become extinct in 26 African countries. Twenty Four Lions is determined to make sure that Mozambique doesn’t join that list.

The most important aspect of any conservation initiative must be based on a scientific foundation. In the Zambeze Delta of Mozambique, humans have the unique opportunity to study a large and diverse ecosystem before and after the introduction of an apex predator. The Cabela Family Foundation provides significant funding for such research.

The Cabela Family Foundation--in partnership with the Ivan Carter Wildlife Conservation Alliance, Zambeze Delta Safaris and Marromeu Safaris--is proud to support Twenty Four Lions. Without revenue from hunting and decades of conservation work by Zambeze Delta Safaris and Marromeu Safaris, none of this work would have been possible.
