Lion ( Panthera Leo)
It is estimated that there are close to 3,000 to 4,000 Lions in Serengeti National Park and surrounding eco system. Serengeti is generally considered one of the best places in Tanzania and East Africa to see these magnificent animals in the wild on a Safari. Individual Lions (males) can hold huge territories ranging from 30 to 400 square kilometers. The lionesses (females) take the lead when it comes to hunting down the prey. From time to time the Males will assist with a hunt. Read more about Serengeti Lions in detail at this page.
