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

Lions of Darkness is the gripping story of a growing lion pride in Savuti, Northern 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.

For the next three years, they dominated, fighting off other males, mating with the resident females and protecting their pride of lionesses and new cubs against any threat.

Watch as lions stalk the night, battle with hyenas for the possession of carcasses and bring down gigantic buffalo in contests that last for hours. These are not only socially complex societies, but also truly the masters of the African night.

But danger lurks behind virtually every bush, whether from ever-present hyenas or from a clever mongoose.

Tau, a lonely, young 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.

This little lion cub soon becomes the focus of the story and it is through his eyes that the complex society of a lion pride is revealed. Intermixed with the narration of Keith David, the Jouberts are also heard explaining some of their own feelings while getting to know the lions, living out their lives with them and witnessing the trials and hardships, joys and delights of lion life.

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.

Narrated by Keith David.
Filmed & produced by Dereck and Beverly Joubert for the National Geographic Society (1994).
