What you need to know:

  • With Valentine and Flir having taken up residence at Soysambu and causing concern for the management because of their taste for prime beef, it was decided to fix satellite collars on the cats.
  • These collars have also revealed a lot about their lifestyle.

“Three lionesses turned up one day from Nakuru National Park,” says Kat Combes of Soysambu Conservancy that straddles Lake Elementaita. It was in July 2014. The trio were three years old, looking for their own space. Two sisters settled in but the third returned to the park. Since then Valentine and Flir have been having the time of their lives, hunting down the best beef cattle in the country and lots of zebra.
