“The Leopard: a beautiful, lethal and solitary killer. The warthog: ugly, feisty, social and fast. Two creatures, so different, yet with a fierce common instinct - to survive in the unforgiving African wild”

The parallel stories of a mama leopard and her two cubs and a mother warthog and her brood are tracked in this hour-long film safari in the Mala Mala Game Reserve in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.

This is a story of predator versus prey, ‘lethal beauty’ versus ‘the most astonishing object to ever disgrace nature’, according to Academy Award-winning actor James Coburn’s rugged narration.

This intimate film presents remarkable close-up footage of the leopard, perhaps the wildest of the great cats and its odd-looking neighbour, the warthog. Their parallel lives include age-old scenes of mating, birth, and raising young.
But when these lives intersect, the outcome is always the same: the formidable leopard outranks the warthog on the food chain.

Cackling hyenas and marauding lions enter the fray and prove as dangerous to the mother leopard as she is to the warthog family. Viewers are not spared the brutality of this truly wild life, and so there are several vivid death scenes.
Incongruously, one of them is probably the film’s most breathtaking sequence, in which one of the grown up leopard cubs attacks an impala and the two cleave together spiralling through the air in a doomed dance.

One of nature’s most magnificent natural settings sets the stage for the many dramas in Beauty And The Beasts: A Leopard’s Story.

BONUS:  this DVD also includes an exclusive, free bonus film by National Geographic.
Spell of the Tiger is a 22-minute ‘Special’ about Bengal tigers and the work of author Sy Montgomery in the mangrove forests of the Sundarbans, Bangladesh.

English narration by James Coburn
