Lion Conservation Experience

Ranger Buck Safaris arranges exclusive access to lions during the darting process and subsequent research work undertaken by the authorities. Guests will be transported to the scene by overland game viewer vehicle to where the animal has been located in the wild. On arrival at the scene you will witness the darting of the lion and the subsequent efforts to immobilize the animal. Once it is safe you will be guided by our professional crew and wildlife vet to assist “hands-on” with the vital tasks that are crucial to the success of the conservation experience.
