Lions are relatively abundant in the Serengeti ecosystem, there is little conflict with man and a regular supply of food. However being at the top of the food chain lions are vulnerable to natural and man made pressures, the Serengeti remains a haven for them.

During the day lions spend most of their time resting and sleeping, they mostly hunt under the cover of darkness. On this page I have tried to show some images of activity other than resting and sleeping.

These photographs were taken in the Ngorongoro crater, Ngorongoro Conservation area and the Serengeti National Park during a two week stay at the end of March 2008. We took many more images of Lions on this trip, please revisit this page to see new images.

Many thanks to Roy Safaris and their excellent guide!

I planned and booked this safari direct with Roy Safaris based in Arusha Tanzania, we have used Roy Safaris to organize six safaris and totally recommend them. Roy Safaris are very experienced and give excellent advice when planning a safari. They deliver an outstanding service and experience not least because of their exceptional guides and well prepared vehicles.
