Tanzania has more lions than any other country. They number around 20,000, although they were well over 100,000 in the recent past. Habitat destruction, persecution from herders, and poaching have been the biggest reason for their decline

The lions in the Serengeti have been studied extensively for decades. This is a photo of the vehicle they use for their research.

The Selous lion cubs entertained us for hours
