ARTICLE: Zambia’s big cats belong in the wild; not on a wall

Earlier this month my family and I travelled to one of the jewels of Zambia’s National Park system – South Luangwa. What an amazing park! In the span of a few short days we saw lions and leopards and elephants and really everything save rhinos and wild dogs – the last my younger son’s favourite, guaranteeing another trip to the park in the near future. 

In addition to seeing the park and its animals, we also met with the park officials, NGOs, community leaders and lodge owners committed to conserving the park and its precious wildlife. And in that regard, frankly speaking, the trip had its sobering moments.
