Hi all,
in the following sentence:

"Lions kill for food, not fun. And they don't leave many leftovers. X Y knows the score. A farmer from Zimbabwe he was born and raised in lion country."

Is Zimbabwe known as the "lion country"? I've found that a UK TV programme has this title and it is set in Zimbabwe.

Thanks.

    Mi chiedevo se in inglese lo Zimbabwe fosse noto come "lion country" oppure se l'autore faccia riferimento all'Africa parlando di "lion country", nel senso di "terra dei leoni". Credo di essermi espressa male.
    Grazie.

    Hello,
    For me, "lion country" means "terra dei leoni" wherever that might be. Certainly the Savannah would be "lion country," for example, so parts of Zimbabwe but not necessarily ALL of the country.
