“This stunning documentary is a portrait of warfare between Africa's most iconic animals and nature's most spectacular battles, between Killer and King"

In Makalolo, part of Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park, teenage lions are almost ready to leave home. They just have one vital lesson to learn: how to kill.

Not only is this Park home to the world’s largest concentration of elephants and wild dogs, but it also supports more than 300 lions, which feast on an unusual abundance of herbivore prey. In Makalolo, killing means taking on one of the continent’s most challenging prey - it's drama all the way, as they go head to horns.

Lions Behaving Badly follows characters in the lion pride and compares their social lives to members of the gregarious buffalo herds.
The backdrop to their battlefield is a land of giants - vast herds of elephants and massive sable horned antelope head a cast of Africa's finest.

As the sun burns off the last of the water, we see life and death struggles in the herds. An elephant mother is forced to abandon her crippled calf, leaving it to its fate - hungry eyes are watching and soon the killer lions move in.

With a lack of females to teach them, the young males have but lost the skills to kill and instead they eat their prey alive. Are these lions behaving badly, or are they just taking advantage of Hwange’s living buffet in the most energy-efficient way? Watch the film and decide….

This DVD is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated 24-page hardback reference book. Watch the close-up wildlife film and at the same time read the book to learn about habitats, diet, life cycle and more. The book is packed with intriguing facts, illustrations, photography and a 'Test your knowledge' quiz.
