Save the Kings and Queens of the African Savannah


Where to see them

Lions are found throughout most of sub-Saharan Africa, from the rare desert lions of the Kalahari in Namibia, to the swimming lions of the Okavango Delta, in Botswana, or on the plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. Lions have earned their name as the Kings and Queens of the African wilderness.


Fun Facts

Lions are actually the least entertaining cats to see in the wild. They spend most of their time sleeping and resting. The real fun begins when they are on a hunt, or when the precious cubs are having some fun!


How to help

Although you may see plenty of lion on your safari, it is a sad reality that their numbers are actually rapidly declining. Habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict, poaching are just some of the reasons.

There are ways to help save the kings and queens of the Savannah, and below are some organizations that work tirelessly for them.
