Uganda Visa For Réunionnais Citizens - Requirements & Fees

Tree-climbing Lions in Ishasha Park, Uganda

Queen Elizabeth National Park is also famous for its tree-climbing lions. These are not distinct lion subspecies. All lions can climb trees, but this park has some particularly climbable trees, and the lions here are quick to take advantage.

On the ground, a lion can be practically invisible, covered in dense, tall grasses, but on a tree, a lion is on full show and most likely sleeps for hours. When the rangers spot a lion in sight, they will communicate with each other so the lion will not wake up before the guests arrive. Travelers will have a decent opportunity to spot a tree-climbing lion. Or you may well ask every other safari vehicle passing by if they have spotted a tree-climbing lion, and keep a lookout.
