The great lions of the Tsaro pride are larger, more fearsome and more innovative than your typical lion. These enormous lions have thick necks and heavy chests built to wade through water and hunt places big cats normally avoid. 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.
Dereck and Beverly Joubert, recently named 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 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.
