National Geographic
Lions of the Serengheti
Lions are magnificent animals. But these iconic predators are not just recognizable for their manes and their roar. Lions are also unique among big cats because they live in social groups called prides, while other big cats remain solitary. Just why they developed such an intricate social hierarchy is one of the questions we looked at in our recent article about lions living in the Serengeti.

For this story, photographer Nick Nichols and videographer Nathan Williamson spent over two years tracking and living with the Vrumbi pride. Explore their amazing photos and video of lions in the wild. See where human and lion populations intersect with our interactive map. Want to learn more about these fierce felines? Dive into the rich content on our Lions Hub. Meet Beverly and Dereck Joubert, National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence who have been documenting lions in the field for more than 30 years. Check out trending photos of #lions on Your Shot. And help us support big cat conservation through our Big Cats Initiative.
