Little Shangani was rescued and rehabilitated by the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust who contacted us to help deploy a tracking device on the 1st of April 2019. We’re not sure of the cause of his minor injuries but he recovered well and was soon released with a tracking device and pink leg band number 48. We’ve really enjoyed watching him explore his Zimbabwe but he has now moved to the Okavango Delta and Central Kalahari for the December holidays… Keep watching!
