National Geographic’s wildlife adventure movie, The Last Lions, tells the suspense-filled tale of a determined lioness ready to try anything to keep her family alive. Created by pioneering filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert, this beautifully shot film tells the tale of Ma di Tau (“Mother of Lions”) and her fragile cubs as they must take a perilous journey through raging fire, rival prides, croc-infested rivers, and deadly buffalo in order to survive.


Yet, even as Ma di Tau faces devastating losses and escalating perils, she becomes part of a stunning turning point in the power dynamics, bringing together a competitive rival pride in a titanic primal bid to preserve the thing that matters most: the future of their bloodlines.

            This was one of the best documentaries I have seen regarding Lions. It kept me zoned in and extremely suspenseful. I was amazed at the quality of video and how fragile nature is in its many forms. This makes any ordinary society problems miniscule in reflection of what the big cats and lions face in the wild.

                        Just received the DVD and the story was a beautiful one, only too much of hunting buffalos. Also, the part with the little cub with the broke spine, broke my heart. To watch him drag his legs behind and cry after his mother was a bit too much to take. There could have been less footage of that poor little thing. Narration would have been plenty. No need for visual. Other then that it was an amazing story.

                                I was lucky enough about a year ago to visit the Masai Mara, and followed a pride of lions and wildebest. This in itself was wonderful, to see these creatures in their own habitat living day by day. This movie however was equally as entrancing, and I would recommend anyone to watch it - the brave but cruel realities of the bush.

                                  The Swamp Pride is on its knees. Its mighty male was killed by poachers, leaving three mothers and their cubs defenseless in one of the toughest landscapes for a lion in Africa. Keeping cubs alive in the Busanga Swamp is hard work, but for these lionesses it has become even harder with two massive young male lions hunting them down. The males want to claim the Swamp Pride and its territory as their own, but to take over a pride they must kill its cubs. The mothers must fight tooth and claw to make sure that doesn’t happen.

                                  The world is addicted to oil. But now the easy pockets of oil are gone and the race is on to find new sources. Nowhere is the battle more intense than in Alaska—source of nearly 15% of America's domestic production, and home to the nation's largest wildlife preserve, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, where companies are pushing to drill. National Geographic travels back millions of years to see how oil was created, and looks to the future to ask how far we'll go to find every last barrel and at what cost.

                                  Naturalist Casey Anderson and cat expert, Tyler Johnerson, set out to track one of North America’s most elusive ghosts: the mountain lion. Armed with specialized camera technology, Casey and Tyler hope to document "never before seen" footage of mountain lions living in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Aided by Tyler’s keen hound dogs, the same strategy employed by leading cat researchers, Tyler and Casey get hot on the heels of this formidable and cunning predator—an animal capable of jumping vertically nearly twenty feet in a single leap and taking prey much larger than its distant relation, the bobcat.

                                  Gabon is an unlikely Eden where relentless predators stalk prey in lush forests, and primates, who have not yet learned to fear man, live right alongside forest elephants. Against all odds, one visionary African leader and a group of dedicated scientists defied the conventional wisdom that insists oil and logging are the only way to bring prosperity to an impoverished land. Out of the wild they created 13 new national parks—and are now developing an eco-tourism industry to sustain them. Gabon: The Last Eden tells this amazing story with stunning footage— silverback gorillas defending territory, mandrill baboons' faces splashed with day-glow color, and hippos wallowing in the ocean—exploring one of the planet's last true wildernesses and what is being done to save it.

From the birth of a male to his exile from his pride, cameras follow along as the male lions roam the plains in a quest to spread their bloodlines throughout the kingdom.

                                  A symbol of mythic potency, the African lion has ruled the human imagination for millennia. But in Botswana's Okavango Delta, the world's most awe-inspiring hunters are challenged not only by their waterlogged territory, but also by their formidable prey—the buffalo—who wield their massive horns with deadly accuracy. 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.
