Last Lioness

A haunting roar echoes across the Liuwa Plain. There is no answer, there hasn’t been for years. She has no pride, no support – she alone must safeguard her own survival. She is Lady Liuwa, the Last Lioness. In the early nineties, a scourge of illegal poaching and trophy-hunting tore through Liuwa Plain. Many species were lost. Liuwa’s lions, once famous for their size and beauty, were reduced to one resilient survivor.

She’s become known as Lady Liuwa, and today she is the only known resident lion on Zambia’s Liuwa Plain. Each day is a new test of survival for her. Hunting alone is difficult and often unsuccessful. Since the lions disappeared, hordes of hyenas have come to dominate the plain, threatening to steal every kill she makes. But her deepest struggle lies within. Lions are the only truly social cats and for an animal hardwired to live in a pride the years of utter isolation must be unnaturally lonely.
