Do Tigers Live in Africa?

Tigers are indigenous to Asia, and as a result, they are not normally found in the wild in Africa. However, there are tigers living in Africa in zoos and other wildlife reservations.

A tiger's normal habitat consists of swamps, grasslands, savannas and forested areas, including rain forests. They are most commonly found in Thailand, India and Indonesia. However, due to poaching and habitat loss, tiger populations are dwindling, with population estimates as low as 3,200 tigers remaining. They are on endangered species lists, and efforts to protect the species are in progress. Large cats that can be found in Africa include lions, leopards and cheetahs.
