Say hello to another new Lion Guardian!

Medidingi is our new Lion Guardian in the Nchakita area of Olgulului. He represents a zone that acts as an important wildlife corridor and is also the habitat of many lions and other wildlife species. He is a reputable spear thrower and strong Maasai moran, despite his diminutive status! What he lacks in physique, he more than makes up for with his traditional knowledge and bravery that is unparalleled in his zone.


Though he has never been to school, Medidingi is a respected tracker who combines his traditional knowledge of wildlife with the technologies, such as telemetry to track collared lions and the use of GPS units that he is being taught by members of our team. His eagerness and willingness to learn new things make him easily able to comprehend the various training he has received.


His proven honesty, pure innocence and absolute sincerity count amongst his several attributes that will contribute to him being an effective Lion Guardian. He has participated actively in several successful lion hunting parties in the past, earning himself the ultimate traditional acclaim. In short, he is a true Maasai moran…completely unspoiled. Please join us in welcoming to the Lion Guardians team.

    welcome Mediding. and so happy to have you as a lion guardian instead of a lion hunter. lions in Kenya need your protection and assistance badly since over 100 of them if not more have been killed during the past seven years. if the death of lions goes on, lions will go extinct for ever.

    Welcome Medidingi and may you thrive as a lion guardian! I wish you will use your knowledge and contacts to spread the word of the importance of protecting the remaining lions in Kenya. Lions are magnificient animals and they should be respected and given the right to coexist with us humans.

  • Thank you so much for your welcoming words to Medidingi, who is thrilled to be part of the team!
