Why, hello, Sweetpea the Kudu!
While visiting Wild is Life in Harare, Zimbabwe, we had afternoon tea with this lovely animal (she's partial to strawberries....)

How's this for a sign?? Probably best to keep your fingers away from lions...

Wild is Life rescues animals who have been orphaned (due to poaching), are ill, or who would otherwise have been killed.

This beauty promptly walked past..see? The sign has some good advice!
Wild is Life has several lions including one that is blind and one that is missing some teeth (making him unable to survive in the wild).

I instantly fell in love with the premises, so easy to get lost among its beauty.
So easy to forget you're in Harare.

A boat as a swinging seat? Emphatic yes please!

Wild is Life has also rescued Levi and Diesel, the cheetahs, from poachers who killed their parents.
