Effectively lions can be found in Africa but in ancient times they inhabited much of Europe and Asia. Today they can be seen in their natural habitat through safari tours offered in the African region where scattered lions live in packs. These cats can live between 15 and 25 years depending on whether they live in the wild or in captivity in which case play is often more difficult.
