Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Animal Planet's large predator expert Dave Salmoni heads deep into the African bush on a double mission - to return to his wild roots and to save a rogue pride of lions from elimination. Big cats, and especially lions, have long been his passion, but recently, Dave has been spending most of his time in the urban jungle as a television producer and host. Now, in INTO THE PRIDE, all his toughness, training and focus are put to the test. Can he survive six months in the Namibian bush on a life or death quest?
Dave must help a pride of "problem lions" learn to accept humans. These are last-chance lions; if they don't calm down, they will be destroyed. The only way to get into these lions' heads is by getting on foot and heading straight into the pride. He has to forge relationships with every lion. Dave needs to become the first human they can trust.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for big cat lovers October 25, 2010
Probably one of the most interesting big cat documentaries I have ever seen and a must-have since watching the mini-series on Animal Planet. Dave Salmoni pulls off quite a stunt getting down on eye level with a pride of rogue lions who have been marked for extermination if he cannot quell their aggression toward humans. It is difficult to imagine what it must be like to be charged by three and four hundred pound cats, but Salmoni stands up to charge after charge to keep from reinforcing the aggression that threatens to put an unfortunate end to the pride.

Surrounded by the natural beauty of a nature reserve deep inside Namibia, this documentary gets up close and personnel with the wild lions Salmoni comes to know by "name" and personality and sheds light on the inner workings of lion communal behavior.

a truely good movie...allows you see and learn about a lion, lioness and the pride....lets you watch habits and movements of a pride...good photography and narration...
you cant get enough of the life of lions...from birth to death...
i found this interesting...interesting enough to buy other stories of lions...including the whole saga of elsa and her pride...

there a fewer and fewer lions (wildlife) in the free lands of the world..they all need help...makes you think one day we will wake up with the only wild animals are in zoos.....shame...

any way movie was well worth the time and money..
packaged well, on time damage or problems what so ever...

2.0 out of 5 stars More Lions August 21, 2011

I enjoy a DVD on Lions or Big Cats. This one I made a mistake on purchasing.
(no fault on the seller as Quality was Excellent & Delivery Quick)
I love to hear the story of the person who has taken the time and effort to make these type of movies, but this one leaves you wondering who the movie is about. There was too many shots of the commentator talking, moving closer etc than of the Lions themselves.
I do understand that the people involved in making the movie want recognition for all the long hard days and nights, costs etc involved in making it. Recognition comes from a well made, presentation of the title, because of the presenter ever present I did exactly the same as when I watched this movie before purchasing it . Turned it off as it was the Lions I was wanting to see, not the presenter. Harsh words, yes but ......
(I purchased this DVD through Amazon)

This is an incredible story of a man trying to help a doomed pride of lions. His commitment is inspiring and his humor makes this a fun watch. I highly recommend it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Booo April 11, 2011
Grandstanding self-promoter, does nothing of value for the cats. He is, though, annoying enough to prompt several charges from exasperated lions.

The author is sought for his expertise in "Lion Taming.". This is a last chance to settle down a rouge pride to live on a reserve. Dave Salmoni really gets into the pride and explores its relationship with humans. Any Lion Lover will Enjoy this fine offering.
