When lions mate, they do so frequently. Copulation is repeated around 4 to 6 times an hour, and goes on for days. If there are more than one dominant male with the pride, the female will often move onto the next male once she's exhausted the first, ensuring protection from all her suitors. Scent marking and roaring does not necessarily follow mating but is common: the male is staking his turf, proclaiming the land and the females on it to be his. Hearing a lion roar so close to you is an indescribable feeling, a real highlight of a Londolozi safari.
