Located approximately 7 kilometers south of the centre of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city with an electric fence separating the park’s wildlife from the metropolis, Nairobi national park is home to hundreds of animal and over 400 species of birds.
Established in 1946, the park brings out the beauty of the city and attracts millions of tourists annually. Well, Radio King Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee who is always on the front line of conserving the environment, recently encountered a rare scene of lions mating.
According to the Radio Jambo’s Patanisho host, the lion and the lioness attracted several tourists who cut short their trips just to have a glance at the couple as they enjoyed their conjugal rights.
Well, Male lions check whether a female is on heat by sniffing her reproductive organs; when the females enter oestrus, they do so for four days, and mating will occur several times an hour. If the female doesn’t conceive, she goes back into oestrus two weeks later. During a mating bout, lions have sex 20 to 40 times a day for a couple of days.
“Seeing lions mate was such an experience! Tourists stopped by the scene not only to see how lions mate but to learn more about the big cats. Kenya is indeed a beautiful land. Welcome to our land all tourists across the world,” said Mulee.
