Tanzania: Serengeti NP – Tree Climbing Lions in Lobo
The Lobo area of Serengeti is famous for its tree-climbing lions. Unlike leopards, it’s rather uncommon for lions to climb trees and it only happens with isolated prides and is most definitely a learned behavior that remains very pride-specific. It is thought that lions climb the trees for observation or to cool off in the breeze, but it looks like they are just doing it because they can and it’s fun.
