Lions

6 of 21

Where: Serengeti Plains, Tanzania

How: By vehicle

When: Year-round

Fully protected and with a large supply of food, the Serengeti lion population has tripled over the past 40 years. The big cats follow their moveable feast (the annual zebra and wildebeest migrations, a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle in itself) the length and breadth of the grassy wilderness. Intimate Places maintains a permanent tented camp in the northern Serengeti and also organizes mobile camping safaris and off-road game drives.
