Lion Safaris in Africa

The Lion truly is the king of all safari experiences. The only cats in the world that have a social structure, lion sightings are often spectacular in their interactions. Be warned: lions will sleep a lot during the day, so don’t be disappointed if you catch them out for the count. Early mornings and evening are the best times to see their big prides active and hunting.

The Serengeti, Kenya’s Masai Mara, Botswana’s Duba Plains, the Kruger National Park in South Africa and Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater are the best places in Africa to see these incredible species in their natural habitat.

The strongest of Africa’s cats by far, the mighty lion never fails to produce a memorable sighting

What You Need To Know

The Serengeti has massive lion populations. Prides of up to 50 individual lions (adults, sub adults and cubs) have been seen in the Lobo or Bologonja areas and there are huge male coalitions of up to five in a pride of nomadic males.

Kenya’s Masai Mara has one of the highest concentrations of lions in Africa and the good visibility across these open plains makes for ideal viewing.

Duba Plains in Botswana’s Linyanti concession is famed for its interaction between lion and buffalo. Viewing a battle between hungry lions and a massive herd of Cape buffalo is an incredible experience and almost guaranteed if  you are in the area for long enough. Duba Plains remains one of the most rewarding lion experiences you can enjoy today.

Kruger National Park’s Satara area is also famous for large lion populations. Unfortunately, travellers are confined to the main road and if the lions move off you cannot follow them into the bush. The private concessions close to Satara ensure worthwhile guided experiences and memorable lion sightings.

Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater has a unique lion-viewing environment. With five different prides on the crater floor and almost 250 individual lions in the greater Ngorongoro Conservation Area, sightings are almost guaranteed in the crater. But it’s best to find them early in order to beat the crowds.
