About African Lion

African Lion 24 is U.S. Africa Command's largest, premier, joint, annual exercise. This year’s event marks a significant milestone as U.S. Army Southern European Task Force, Africa (SETAF-AF) leads the exercise for U.S. Army Africa Command, which is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the African Lion exercise series.

The exercise runs until May 10 in Tunisia, but will continue until May 31 in three other host nations: Morocco, Ghana and Senegal. While more than 1,000 military personnel from both the U.S. and Tunisia are participating here, more than 8,000 multinational service members from 27 countries and contingents from NATO will participate in the exercise.

Under the leadership of SETAF-AF, African Lion 2024 in Tunisia showcases the commitment of the U.S. military to maintaining robust relationships with allies and partners, embodying the core principles to its approach in Africa: partner-led and U.S.-enabled.
