An extensive research program is being done on the rehabilitation of lions in the park, once a stronghold for these powerful predators. Their numbers dwindled down dramatically during the civil war, but today’s estimate shows 50 to 70 individuals. They have become more relaxed and are regularly spotted on game drives.
