The complete first and second series of the wildlife documentary series, following the fortunes of groups of lions, leopards, and cheetahs over a two-year period in the Kenyan Masi Mari reserve. In series one, Simba is the only male lion in a 30-strong pride, who has to fight two rival males for control, while Kike the cheetah must look after her new litter of cubs. In series two, Kike's family have all ventured out of their own, Bella the leopard prepares her cub Chui for life on his own, and the two lions Cheza and Sala get up to all sorts of mischief. Presented by Jonathan Scott, Simon King, and Saba Douglas-Hamilton.
From a camp in the heart of Kenyas magnificent Masa Mara comes the thrilling Big Cat Week, a unique glimpse of Africas majestic big cats in their natural habitat.
Series One follows lone male Simba, as he strives to defend the Marsh Pride of lions from two young outsider males who threaten them. Other storylines include Kike the cheetahs struggle to feed her babies and protect them from danger, and Bella the leopards ambush on a herd of wildebeest crossing the river. Series Two re-visits Kike and Bella.

For anyone unfamiliar with the concept of Big Cat week three presenters follow three sets of big cats around for a week and see what happens. It's that simple, but some of the drama that unfolds is mesmerising and buttock clenchingly tense. Before the end of the first episode you are hooked into caring what happens to these animals and worry almost as much as the presenters, who let me, tell you worry a hell of a lot, every time something seems to be amiss.
We follow the pride of lions dubbed the marsh pride because they live near a marsh handily enough with Simon King who is probably the most dispassionate of the presenters. Saba Douglas Hamilton (driving her Big Cat jeep in bare feet) is attached to a leopard called Bella and her cub Chui while Jonathan Scott tracks the cheetahs. Hamilton is passionate and articulate but rarely gets overly emotional which is more than you can say about Scott who spends every episode getting in a right tizzy about something and is weirdly camp with it. The cheetahs though are the most at risk of the three groups so in a way it's understandable.
Series one has Scott following Kike trying to raise her litter of cubs , something she has never managed successfully before and for series two he follows up to see how she is getting on. King after following the marsh pride for the first series turns his attention to a couple of lions - Chezah and Sala- for the second while Hamilton stays with Bella for both.Read more ›
Great DVD, well worth the money!
I just wanted to suggest this DVD series for any wildlife lover of any kind. I live in the Unites States of America, and unfortunately we over here don't have the opportunity to buy these DVDs in America. Our local DVD retailers don't even know what the show is when I ask them, and they are only available on the European Region DVD players (which an American must have to play these DVDs). I took my search across the Atlantic to Britain and found them here on Amazon. These DVDs are just fantastic for those of us that can't afford to go to Africa at the moment. The narrators, are just great. One can tell that they really enjoy being in the Masai Mara and it just makes for a great viewing experience. I honestly would prefer watching this some nights over regular movies. The reason being is because the viewer gets to know the different cat's on a personal level because they follow the same group around on a daily basis. By the end of the show you will find yourself aligning yourself with the different cats. These truly are amazing and the best $14USD I have spent in a while!!
Blessings to all of my British Friends across the Atlantic
Great entertainment for the entire family!
Unfortunately, they keep talking about cubs dying of hunger or being killed by adult males or by hyenas. It could be a bit disturbing for little children, so be careful.
English subtitles are available.
