The National Parks and Wildlife Authority said fliers are being handed out in the town today and volunteers are using a loudspeaker to caution townspeople on the dangers of lion attacks on the shores of Lake Kariba, a man-made hydroelectric dam popular for fishing and tourism.
It said one man escaped from a lion attack yesterday, but the woman with him was savaged to death.
An arm and remains of a second corpse were found by rangers hunting for the lions.
The authority warned people against walking at night and using footpaths through the bush as shortcuts.
