All these efforts have seen the area take on a new lease on life. Year after year, we have been welcoming more and more species of wild animals to the area as they now know there is water, food, protection, and a safe space to call home for them to enjoy freely…
In 2018, the first relocation took place where 8 elephants were carefully moved from ZEN in Harare to Panda Masuie.
The second mammoth relocation took place in 2020 (amidst the pandemic nonetheless) and another 6 elephants were moved by road over 1000kms from Harare to Victoria Falls.
Both relocation operations were hugely successful with no injuries or any other issues along the way thanks to the super diligent Wild is Life, ZEN and Panda Masuie teams in partnership with IFAW.
Endless planning and preparing for months in advance ensured that each elephant move is a trumpeting success!
