Why this activity

  • Watching these lions lounge lazily in the trees is a one-off experience
  • It's still not fully understood why they do it, many believe it's to escape the heat and flies of ground level
  • This behaviour isn't natural to lions, so it's entertaining to watch their clumsy attempts!
  • The lions generally climb the trees everyday after their morning hunt, so we visit at midday for the best viewing time.
