Tanzania is currently home to around 16,000 lions. These social animals live in prides, each comprised of around three male lions, six to twelve lionesses, and lion cubs. The territory is held by the lioness, who also do the hunting and feeding of the cubs. Although lions are social animals, they are egalitarian, meaning they are not born into a rank and hence, do not have a permanent hierarchy. The Lions can be tracked down in the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara National Park, and Ruaha National Park.
