Tree Climbing Lions in Uganda

The tree climbing lion’s safari in Queen Elizabeth National park in Uganda is a memorable safari in Uganda that one must experience in a lifetime. Most people think the big cats being on the trees is a myth but when you visit Queen Elizabeth National park it’s the reality that one must see for them just like the saying seeing is believing .

The reason these cats climb the trees is not known with every scientist creating their hypothesis on how they started climbing trees and why they climb them with others claiming the big cats climb up to stay away from tsetses flies and my question with this hypothesis is why is it that other lions in other national parks don’t climb yet they have tsetse flies too, others claim its because they are getting better view of the prey, others claim they do this to relax all we say at Amani Apillar safaris is book your tree climbing lions safari and get to marvel at them , watch them hunt and see many more wildlife in Uganda.
