Moment lioness takes a quick nap after mating session 

THIS is the moment a lioness appears to need a quick lay down after a mating session.

The footage was taken in in the Sabi Sabi Reserve of Kruger National Park in South Africa.

It shows the big cat immediately laying on her side after being mounted by her male partner.

Dana Haidar – who filmed the clip – said: “There were four of us in the Jeep with our ranger.

“We had spotted around five lions and the ranger was explaining the mating process of Lions, and she was sure it was going to happen very soon, since she has experience in those things.

“We stayed for a while and saw it happen twice.

“It was the first time I had ever experienced something like that.

“You can tell by my voice tones and expressions how excited we all were.

“Some people go on five day safari trips and don’t even get the chance the see any lions at all.

“The mating process itself lasts only few seconds, but we saw it more than once.”
