Water management

The pulse of activity within LUMO CommunityWildlife Sanctuary is dictated by the rains. Our short rains failed, but we had a green Christmas followed by a short dry period and then the long rains came by mid-February- a full two months early. We now must manage grazing and water to ensure that the sanctuary can sustain increased wildlife herds as animals begin to feel safe in LUMO.

Funds from CDTF enabled partial dredging of the dam behind Lion Rock, which is now holding water and attracting game. The lodge dam was also cleaned and should have a new clay seal soon so that you can enjoy game at water from your veranda all year round.
