While in queen Elizabeth national park, you can also enjoy the boat cruise that is done along the Mweya peninsular, and Katunguru, in nothern part of the park. A game drive can also offer you a chance to experience and see more other animals that include the elephants, leopards, other lions, buffaloes, and many others. When you want to see the lions, you can combine these tree climbing lions with either chimpanzee tracking (only 2 hours from Queen elizabeth to Kibale national park) or Gorilla trekking in Bwindi, (also takes you at least 4 hours drive to bwindi). Both of these tours can take you at least 5 days. So we recommend at least 5 days Gorilla & Wildlife Trip or 5 Days Wildlife & Chimpanzee Tracking Trip.
About Tanzania’s climbing lions
The other climbing lions are found in Tanzania, in the Southern Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park. These homes to the first great population of the rare tree-climbing lions. The behavior of the tree climbing lions in these national park is a form of protection from irritation of insects biting the lions when they are on the ground. These lions are among the attractions in the national park. However Some animal behaviorists claim that these lions have perfected the art of climbing trees as a way of escaping the sweltering heat on ground level.
