Why are lions considered king of the jungle? – Wildlife Safari in Uganda

Lions are among a few big cats found in Uganda’s National parks and it is among the most wanted to be seen animals on a game drive.

uganda safari toursLions’ habitat is the open savanna where they hunt mammals like gazelles, antelope, and zebra. They may also cooperate to catch larger mammals such as buffalo, giraffes and even crocodiles. Female lions do most of the hunting though they sometimes work together to get prey.

While on your Uganda safari tour, you should know that Gorilla trekking in Uganda Bwindi impenetrable forest isn’t the only tour activity in Uganda. On your way to Bwindi, get a chance to pass through Queen Elizabeth National Park and experience the exciting king of the jungle.

Lions are the kings of the jungle because of their raw power and strength. Lions fear no other animals. However, like a king, lions do have enemies and their worst enemy is the hyena. Both the lions and the hyenas often compete over food. The other enemy the lions have are people.

Like the way kings do, lions also maintain order and balance by killing other animals. Herds of antelope would overcrowd the parks and destroy all the grass resources if there were no lions in the park.

The lion is considered king, because it is in control of the land it lives on and all the other animals that live on it.

It is sometimes said that if it wasn’t for the ugly looks and walk of the hyena, it would be considered the king of the jungle but the beauty and grace of a lion makes it the perfect king of the jungle.

 

However, after or before your Uganda gorilla safaris / Rwanda gorilla safari tour, find more of these cats in Akagera National park in Rwanda.
