Cats of East Africa

Male Lion

(Simba)

Maasai Mara Reserve, Kenya

Lions (as we think of them) evolved about 600,000 years ago. Although the least active of the African cats, hunger will change their behavior, driving them to dig for prey, the aardvark, for example.

Their inactivity - one study in the Serengeti found them to be inactive for as much as 19 hours a day - means they are usually easily found on safaris with plenty of time to observe them. You may be struck by the similarity of their gestures and mannerisms to those of the house cat.

The Swahili for lion is simba.
