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 over the years the Mara has earned its reputation as an extraordinary area for viewing lions.
Lions of the Mara
The greater Mara-Serengeti ecosystem features terrific densities of lions. The lions of the Mara have been film stars with many prides and individuals featured on the Big Cat Diaries and Disney’s African Cats. The area seems to always have a number of large male coalitions, which are constantly disputing territories and the ownership of many prides. When the migration herds are in the Mara the chances of seeing lions hunting becomes very good.
