Tree climbing lions

Tre tree climbing lions are quite a unique species in the wild because of their different characteristics. It should be noted that the lions climb trees due to a number of reasons for instance the fact that they are keeping an eye on their prey which will lead them to sneak upon their prey. Another reason why the lions climb trees is because of the fact that they are running away from the scotching sun that hits up the ground and during the rainy season they climb the trees running away from a number of insects whose bites can cause irritation, during the dry season, they also climb the trees to cool off from the heat with the help of the shade that can be got from the trees, they also climb them as a way to escape from the charging buffaloes which makes them quite intelligent species. aside from the tree climbing lions, you can also watch a number of animal species like the Uganda Kobs, you will also get to watch the buffaloes, a number of bird species which make the activity quite memorable.
