The lion is the species that is most sought after by safari goers. Lions can be observed in most protected wildlife areas that are popular locations for safari, but we like to include areas that have particular high densities or good chances for observing behavior.
Tanzania’s Serengeti has terrific densities of lions. Serengeti is great for the classic poses on rock outcrops (kopjes). Ruaha in Tanzania may be the best kept secret, it is lightly touristed but has some of the highest densities of lions for great viewing during the dry season.
