Where Do White Lions Live?

The natural habitat of the white lion is the Timbavati region in South Africa. As of 2014, most white lions live in captivity, and there have only been a few sightings of them in the wild.

The earliest sighting of a wild white lion was recorded in 1938 in the Timbavati region, but white lions have been a part of oral African records for centuries. The white lion is an extremely rare animal that carries a unique gene that makes its coat considerably lighter than the usual tawny-colored lion. They have been hunted and prized as rare trophies for decades since their discovery.
