Tanzania now is home to 40 percent of Africa’s lion population

Another reason the Serengeti is so precious
Tanzania now has the lion’s share — 40% of Africa’s lions. About 3,500 live in the Serengeti, nearly 18% of all lions in Africa!
The latest estimate, just 20,000 African lions remain. Half of what it was twenty years ago. A drop of 95% in the past century.
"Tanzania has at 8,176 lions, though this number may be to low, as many lions live outside of protected areas. Only 6 countries have more than 1,000 lions. South Africa has 2,070 , Kenya 1,825, Zimbabwe has 1,709.
