Of all their experience, National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert consider their two years with the lions of Duba the most exciting, important research they have done—here presented in fascinating text and 100 gripping images.


The tawny lion slinks through golden grass, stealthy and sinuous, utterly focused on the hunt. He's a perfect predator awaiting the instant when pure instinct triggers the rush, the spring, the ferocious slash of sharp claws and merciless fangs that will bring down her prey. It's a scene as old as Africa itself, yet its sudden, violent drama is always new.


The Jouberts know it well. For decades they've lived among lions, winning international acclaim for their unique photographs and pioneering documentaries, which record previously unknown lion behavior such as nocturnal forays and a willingness to stalk their quarry through water.


Month after month, they battled hardship and danger to capture these spectacular shots of the relentless blood rivalry on the Okavanga Delta as three separate lion prides harry a huge herd of buffalo.

Dereck and Beverly Joubert, National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence, are internationally acclaimed naturalists and cinematographers. Their many years with lions have yielded not only books like Hunting with the Moon, but also such highly praised documentary films as Eternal Enemies: Lions and Hyenas; Reflections on Elephants; and Lions of Darkness, an outstanding body of work that has won four Emmys, two Chris awards, and a George Foster Peabody award.

Trapped on an island with these giant killers are thousands of buffalo who are forced to devise defensive tactics and eventually learn to fight back. See the battle unfold from a unique perspective as National Geographic Channel tracks the movements from the air and up close. Narrarated by Jeremy Irons.

A symbol of mythic potency, the African lion has ruled the human imagination for millennia.

Pulsing with ancient rhythms of wild Africa, this harsh and eternal struggle is compelling, powerful, and poignant. Award-winning filmmakers and National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Beverly and Dereck Joubert, give us an unforgettable glimpse of this iconic drama in the official companion book to their feature film, The Last Lions, and warn that due to declining numbers of lions in the wild, it may soon end forever.

Move over, Rin Tin Tin. Here comes Sgt. Stubby! That German shepherd star of the silver screen may have been born behind enemy lines during World War I, but Stubby, the stump-tailed terrier, worked behind enemy lines, and gained military rank and honors along the way. Private Robert Conroy casually adopted the orphan pup while attending basic training on the campus of Yale University in 1917. The young recruit never imagined that his stray dog would become a war hero. He just liked the little guy. When Conroy's unit shipped out for France, he smuggled his new friend aboard. By the time Stubby encountered Conroy's commanding officer, the dog had perfected his right-paw salute. Charmed, the CO awarded Stubby mascot status and sent him along with Conroy's unit to the Western Front. Sgt. Stubby's brave deeds earned him a place in history and in the Smithsonian Institution where his stuffed body decorated with war medals can still be seen. Even 100 years later, Sgt. Stubby's great deeds and brave heart make him an animal hero to remember and treasure.
