These lions are known to rest and perch in the branches of fig trees, providing a remarkable sight for visitors.  However, it is believed that they climb the trees to escape from the heat on the ground and to get a better vantage point for spotting prey. Apart from the unique tree-climbing lions, the Ishasha Sector is also home to other wildlife, including elephants, buffalos, antelopes, and various bird species, making it an excellent spot for wildlife viewing and photography.
