“Rarely before has the drama of life on the wild plains of Africa been portrayed more intimately than in this remarkable film from renowned wildlife filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert”

Three young lions walk out of the night and take over an older lion’s territory and his harem of eight lionesses....

National Geographic has captured a year in the life of these lions of darkness and their pride. Lions of Darkness is the gripping story of a growing lion pride in Botswana that begins as three outsiders - young and aggressive - invade the pride’s territory and depose its aged leader. Their swift, merciless victory opens a new era for the pride.

The eight lionesses soon give birth to their new leaders’ cubs and there are young everywhere, feeding, playing and training for survival. But danger lurks behind virtually every bush, whether from ever-present hyenas or from a clever mongoose.

One lonely cub, born late and orphaned early, endures hardships so heart-rending the filmmakers were tempted to intervene. But they decided to let nature run its unpredictable course.

The result, captured on film forever, is the story of an incredible little cub’s struggle to survive.
Join National Geographic on an up-close adventure to Africa, where two of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers reveal Lions Of Darkness.

With this DVD you will also receive a second DVD free-of-charge: ‘Walking with Lions’:
Walking with Lions takes us to a remote corner of the Zambezi Valley in northern Zimbabwe. Here, a remote spring serves as the sole source of water for thousands of wild animals during the harsh eight-month dry season. They trek from afar to slake their thirst in a death trap: an African spring surrounded by a pride of lions. Witness the conflict faced between satisfying their need to drink while walking the gauntlet into a narrow gorge harbouring hidden predators.

This is a 2-disc DVD set, produced by National Geographic.
