A new life in South Africa has begun for over 30 lions rescued from circuses in Peru and Colombia.
Most of the lions were taken from circuses in surprise raids and were moved to Africa in what's thought to be the biggest airlift of its kind.
The group landed in Johannesburg over the weekend and soon will be living on a 12,000-acre private sanctuary.
