King the Lion Cub

A lion cub has found his forever home. King was found in the summer of 2017 in an abandoned apartment in Paris,France. He had been half-starved, locked in a small, dirty cage and abused by his owner who was illegally keeping King as an “exotic pet.” After a video of the animal’s abuse went viral, French animal rescue charities found King a temporary home at Natuurhulpcentrum rescue centre in Belgium, where King was nursed back to health. Through generous supporters and donations, King made a 10,000 km journey to relocate to Born Free’s Big Cat Rescue Centre at Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa, where he will receive lifetime care and a permanent home. African Travel, Inc. is delighted to have supported King’s transfer to his forever home.

Shamwari Game Reserve Boma

Located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, Shamwari Game Reserve combines 5-star accommodation with a world-class wildlife experience. Guests who visit Shamwari will not only experience an exceptional African safari holiday, but will also directly help rhino conservation. At African Travel, Inc., conserving and protecting the places we visit is at the heart of what we do. We are passionate about protecting and conserving wildlife and we are very proud to announce that starting this year, when guests book Majestic South Africa, a $50 per couple donation will be made in their name(s) to go towards the building of a rhino boma at Shamwari. The rhino boma will be a safe haven to rehabilitate injured or orphaned rhino, until they are strong enough to be released back into the wild.
