Eye of the Leopard takes us on an enthralling journey deep into the rarely seen lives of leopards. Award-winning filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert capture a remarkably intimate and gripping story of a leopard's survival in wild, unspoiled Africa over a period of three years.


It's a journey of birth, life and death as a mother leopard and her first surviving cub fight off marauding baboons and elude scavenging hyenas in a constant struggle for survival. Through tragedy and triumph, the Jouberts are there to document it all. Narrated by Jeremy Irons.


Not available for shipment outside of the U.S.


  • Widescreen
  • Approximately 90 minutes
  • © 2006

Dereck and Beverly Joubert, recently named National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence, are internationally acclaimed naturalists and cinematographers. Their many years with african wildlife, particularly lions, have yielded not only books like Hunting with the Moon, but 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.

      I watched and watched the daughter taking care of the baby baboon, I could not help but wonder how these wild animals have such motherly instinct even when so young.

          This is by far, the best animal documentary I have ever seen! The Joubert's are the absolute best when it comes to wildlife films. Legadema's story, of a cub growing up against all odds to be the queen that she is will thoroughly captivate you. Do yourself a favour, and buy this DVD NOW!

            This Video is one of the best Wildlife Documentaries I have viewed. I have watched it at least 3 times in the last couple of years and I still get emotional each time I see it.

            It is a beautiful, sensitive and well documented story of one particular Leopard's life from infancy to adulthood. A must see for all big cat fans...

              Comments about Eye of the Leopard DVD:

              This is quite possibly the best conceived, filmed, written, edited & narrated big cat documentary ever.

              Dereck & Beverly Joubert did an amazing job following this female leopard for three+ years, accumulating an abundance of spectacular footage. Jeremy Irons narrates. Even the BBC would be proud to call this one their own.

              The only thing keeping me from buying it is the lack of a blu-ray version. The HD presentation on my DVR will have to do until someone at NatGeo rectifies the situation.

The cubs are hand reared, and taught to live independently before being released back to the jungle. A year later, the team unites to search for the cubs they set free. Shy and elusive, even cat specialists know little about the clouded leopard's habits, can they be taught to live in the wild again?

              Each moment events take place that the human eye cannot perceive because these occurrences are too small, too large, too fast, too slow, or beyond the spectrum of visible light. Entire worlds might escape our inspection if it were not for some extraordinary photographic techniques, sophisticated cameras, and imaging devices. The Invisible World will captivate you with the sight of water crystallizing into ice; a single atom's movement within solid matter; a bullet speeding towards its target—and will forever alter your understanding and perception of the world.

              The dog is the ultimate human creation. With 400 breeds and counting, the dog is more varied in size and behavior than any other species on the planet. National Geographic looks at man's evolutionary manipulation of dogs' appearance, talents and temperament—and the accelerating efforts to create breeds to suit our needs (more than 80 percent of today's breeds did not exist 150 years ago). From desirable traits like supersensitive hearing and smell to the unintended consequences of genetic diseases, learn how nature and man have partnered to deliberately create new and specialized versions of man's best friend.

              For over 500 million years, the jellyfish has survived in our oceans. Today, global warming and pollution may be contributing to a population explosion, as billions of these sometimes venomous creatures increasingly swarm around our beaches and shorelines. And though they have no bones, blood or brain, some jellyfish are armed with a deadly arsenal unlike any other on the planet. National Geographic dissects the fascinating physiology of this living fossil, from its 24 clustered eyes down to the tips of its stinging tentacles, and examines how man's impact on the environment may be creating a growing invasion.
