Buffy arrived from the Lion and Cheetah Park in Harare, Zimbabwe. She had lived alone for two years following the death of her mate who was killed during an escape. Despite the willingness of Chimfunshi to accept her, bureaucracy and political in-fighting stalled her departure to the Orphanage for more than a year, until national coordinator of the Zimbabwe NSPCA, Ms Meryl Harrison, intervened on her behalf.
Buffy is still very much alive living with the family group in Enclosure 3.
