Everyone knows that cats love to sleep everywhere, but little cats are not the only ones who prefer this type of (in) activity. Even these big cats are taking advantage of the empty streets during the coronavirus lockdown to take a nap where they couldn't have before. It happens in South Africa where, taking advantage of the quarantine, the lions decided to choose the path of Kruger National Park to have a good sleep, no longer disturbed by the presence of man.
The magnificent photos were taken on Wednesday April 15 by Richard Sowry, ranger of the Kruger National Park, a nature reserve that was closed by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic as well as other South African parks.
When the park is open, that road is busy with tourists and lions rarely stop there, so the scene captured by Richard's camera is extraordinary.
The park ranger took photos while staying in his car, and managed to get close to about 5 meters from the lions who in the meantime seemed not to have paid too much attention to him.
