Arguably the Lion is the most popular out of the ‘Big 5’ hard to hunt animals people want to see, perhaps because it’s so associated with and deeply attached to Africa in people’s consciousness. Although two of the most popular National Parks in Africa – The Serengeti (northern Tanzania) and the Kruger National Park (South Africa) – are great places to spot Lions, mainly due to the fact that the populations in both are not in decline, Selous comes highly recommended because you are likely to be the only tourists around when you spot them, so you have the whole experience to yourself.
