The saying, "like a grizzly bear protecting her cubs" should now be, "like Matimba and Khanya protecting their cubs." The two lionesses take on anything that threatens their cubs, often risking their own lives.
Dangers, triumphs, and tragedy the small pride experiences are documented in this amazing show. The potential drawbacks of white lion cubs in the wild, possible issues with their coats standing out in coloring, is referenced. However, the intense story of this lion family group would be no less engrossing, and engaging, if Matimba's cubs were not white. The photography, and sound, are fantastic, and provide the feel of being there with the small pride. The narrative is informative, and non-intrusive, pulling you deeper into the lion's story. Death is acknowledged as a part of the lion's life, and occasionally shown, but the focus is on the pride's determination to succeed against great odds.
I highly recommend this show.
The two lioness sisters, decided to take the four cubs to a safer location because the three male lions were after them, and would have surely killed the cubs in order to bring the two adult lioness sisters into season. I was very impressed with the loyalty and devotion that these two close-nit sisters engaged in, in order to protect their vulnerable cubs. And when one of the marauding male lions finally caught up with this fugitive group, the two sisters risked their own lives to fight off this marauding male, in order to give the cubs a fair chance to escape into the dense brush. This documentary follows the cubs until they are grown, and old enough to fend for themselves against hyena, or other lion threats.
At times during the film, the white coats of the two lioness cubs became a hunting hindrance, when all of them needed to be camouflaged into their surrounding, in order to hunt without being seen by sharp eyed antelope.Read more ›
