Product Description

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. It's 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.

Three young lions walk out of the night and take over an older lion's territory and his harem of eight lionesses. This National Geographic video captures a year in the life of these lions of darkness and their pride. Filmed and narrated by renowned wildlife filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert, the 75-minute video provides an in-depth look at the lions' daily struggle to survive. The Jouberts add a personal touch by naming the lions and noting differences in their personalities and interactions with each other--especially their interactions with Tao, the youngest cub, who faces even greater obstacles than the others. A few scenes, such as the death of the older lion, may be too intense for younger children, but the realism of this video is what makes it such a fascinating and memorable portrait. --Larisa Lomacky Moore
