If you are talking about a natural habitat:

Lions live in prairies, semi-arid plains and Savannah grasslands within southern areas of the African continent. Many thousands of years ago, lions were plentiful throughout Europe, southern Asia, eastern and central India and the entire African continent. Today, they have been wiped out from all other continents (apart from Africa) except for a small region of India. They have even been hunted to extinction in the north of Africa, so now they are only found naturally south of the Sahara Desert.

Even though lions have the nickname of "King of the Jungle", they do not live in heavy forests or jungles; nor do they live in desert areas due to a lack of prey. Asiatic lions live in the Gir Forest of India (in the state of Gujarat), although they have reached near-extinction. The ones that live in the Gir Forest are protected by the Nawab of Junagadh. These few remaining (approximately 200 in 1990) are still at risk as their habitat has shrunk by over half since the beginning of the twentieth century. They are also not the true Asiatic lion, but a sub-species that survived past the deadly time of the 20th century.

Lions may also live in zoos, conservation parks and preservation sites.

Most lions live in Africa, mainly on the savannah, although some lions live in the forests. Most lions live in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and Senegal, and they are the largest African lions. There is also a minority in Botswana and the Congo. Moreover, there are Asiatic lions which live at south-east India (Gir Forest).

In the wild, the African lion is found in parts of eastern and southern Africa.


Most of them live in Africa, a continent south of Europe. There are some in India, and a few scattered in the Middle East.

There are also the Mountain Lion - or Cougar, living along the Rookie Mountain and Andres Mountain
