"A breathtaking, up-close and beautifully shot wildlife adventure which follows a brave lioness and her fragile cubs through raging fire, rival prides, croc-infested rivers, and deadly buffalo."

Filmed in the lush wetlands of Botswana's Okavango Delta, The Last Lions tells the suspense-filled tale of a determined lioness - ready to try anything, willing to risk everything - to keep her family alive.

Pioneering filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert follow the perilous journey of a lioness named Ma di Tau ('Mother of Lions') as she battles to protect her cubs against a daunting onslaught of enemies in order to ensure their survival.
Yet, even as Ma di Tau faces devastating losses and escalating perils, she becomes part of a stunning turning point in the power dynamics, bringing together a competitive rival pride in a titanic primal bid to preserve the thing that matters most: the future of their bloodlines.

Fleeing a raging fire and a rival pride, headed by the dangerous cub-killing lioness Silver Eye, Ma di Tau and her fragile cubs must make their perilous escape by swimming a crocodile-infested river. Remote Duba Island is both a refuge and a strange new world for Ma di Tau and her cubs to conquer.  On Duba, Ma di Tau must face off with the island's herd of fierce buffalo whose huge, slashing horns are among the most dangerous weapons in Africa. Although the buffalo are one of her biggest threats, they are also one of her best hopes for survival if she can prevail over them.

The gripping real-life saga of Ma di Tau, her cubs, the buffalo, and the rival pride unfolds inside a stark reality: lions are vanishing from the wild. In the last 50 years, lion populations have plummeted from 450,000 to as few as 20,000.
Dereck and Beverly Joubert weave their dramatic storytelling and breathtaking, up-close footage around a resonating question:
Are Ma di Tau and her young to be among the last lions?

Dereck and Beverly Joubert are award-winning filmmakers from Botswana who have been National Geographic explorers-in-residence for over four years. They have been filming, researching, and exploring in Africa for over 28 years and have been awarded many, distinguished awards, including five Emmys, a Peabody, the World Ecology Award, and a recent induction into the American Academy of Achievement.
Their mission is the conservation and understanding of the large predators and key African wildlife species that determine the course of all conservation in Africa. Dereck and Beverly established the Big Cats Initiative, a program designed to drive the world's attention to big cats and to develop real solutions to stop the dramatic decline in lion numbers over the past 50 years.
