Mature male Lion (Panthera leo), the king of the African carnivores, eats everything from tortoises to giraffes. When prey is plentiful, it spends 20 hours per day conserving energy, becoming active in early afternoon and late at night. Lion roars to announce its presence and hearing its roar, which can reach a distance of 8 km, is one of Africa’s most unforgettable experiences.
