Mosi-O-Tunya National Park (Zambia) To Introduce Cheetahs

http://allafrica.com/stories/200504260187.html

This article tells of plans by Mosi-O-Tunya National Park to introduce cheetahs into the park as a way of controlling the antelope population.

It further states that more and more tourists are choosing to visit the Zambian side of Mosi-O-Tunya (Victoria Falls) due to the political instability in Zimbabwe.

For anybody choosing to visit Livingstone, this combines quite nicely with places such as Kasaka River Lodge (www.kasakariverlodge.com) in Lower Zambezi and Luangwa River Lodge (www.luangwariverlodge.com) in South Luangwa amongst other places such as Sausage Tree Camp and Chiawa Camp in Lower Zambezi and Robin Pope Safaris in South Luangwa.

Airfare from Livingstone to Lusaka is a mere $125, and it is about the same price to fly into Lusaka as it is to fly into Victoria Falls.

For a transfer from Lusaka to Lower Zambezi National Park, it is a mere $125 or less per person, and to go to South Luangwa from Lusaka it is about $325 per person.

Given the pricing of Zambian lodges, it is possible to visit Victoria Falls AND have a nice safari at a very nice lodge/camp for a very good price.

Thanks for the update. More cheetah habitat, if it is suitable, is great news.
