“A newborn Wildebeest calf is saved from the jaws of a band of marauding Hyenas by an unlikely rescuer: a Lioness”

Wildebeest run the world’s most dangerous marathon: a million contestants, travelling almost 2,000 miles each year through the Serengeti, in the never-ending search for greener pastures.

Instead of following a million, Saved By The Lioness follows one extraordinary wildebeest calf on the Serengeti plains of Tanzania. Within moments of birth, she is seized by a lioness. Her life seems over before it has begun.

However, what should be the end of the story is just the start. Not knowing that lions are dangerous, her instinct drives the naïve calf to bond with the nearest warm body: the lioness.
Then, miraculously and so rare it has never been filmed before, the lioness bonds in return.

That’s just day one. A year of hazards follows: the epic drama of the Great Migration. Our young wildebeest runs a gauntlet of predators - cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and hostile lions - only to reach a crocodile-infested river that must be crossed.

Saved By The Lioness is a story of a mother’s bond, a species’ endurance and one extraordinary calf’s breathtaking survival.
