Product Description

Based in Antelope Park, a 3,000-acre game reserve in Zimbabwe and Livingstone in Zambia, David and the team prepare captive-bred lions for release into the wild. During the six-part series we get to know members of the park team and their feline charges. Assuming the position of alpha male, David helps the lions to re-discover the essential hunting skills of stalking, capturing and killing prey. When their programme is complete, they are released into a massive 10,000-acre managed reserve.

Have the lions learnt enough to survive in this dangerous environment?

Over here in Germany this documentary series hasn't aired yet so I didn't know much about it when I ordered the dvd from Amazon. I love documentaries about African wildlife and particularly the big cats, so I figured I couldn't go wrong. Thankfully, I was right ... :o)

"Lion Country" follows British conservationist David Youldon and his team in their quest to teach young lions which were reared by people the skills they need to survive in the wild. Once they're about two years old they are brought in groups (= prides) to a release site within a 10,000 acre enclosure. The ultimate goal is to release their cubs into the wild when they are grown.

I found the six episodes episodes very interesting if somewhat short (each one is about 22 minutes long). David Youldon is a likable presenter who has an obvious bond with and passion for these lions. Seeing him (and the other handlers) play and interact with them almost makes you believe they are just overgrown domestic cats. But, as Youldon points out again and again, you can never forget that these are wild animals which are potentially dangerous and can only be approached like this as long as they recognize him as the leader of their pride.

The footage of daily work with the lions is interspersed with beautiful shots of the African landscape. Overall, I didn't like "Lion Country" quite as much as the "Big Cat Week" dvds, but it's still a very good documentary series. I've heard that a second series with 12 episodes is currently being shot, and I will certainly buy it once it is released on dvd.

P.S.: Amazon states the runtime of this dvd as 180 minutes --- this is not correct. The actual runtime is only 132 minutes (as stated on the dvd itself)!

I found this really interesting and a pleasure to watch, but did find that it wasn't as detailed as the series itself. .but still would recommend watching and is great viewing. Looking forward to the next series :)

A must for every fan of the series and everyone who loves lions. The second series has just finished, so having to wait a year to catch up with the Ngamo and Dambwa prides and the rest of the ALERT lion family will be made a little easier by having this to view as and when I want. I also bought the Lion Country book.

Anyone who has any interest in animal conservation at all should watch this. It's only 6 episodes long, but it captures the dedication of the Lion Rehabilitation Programme very well. It'll certainly tide you over until season 2 is released too..!

This is a zone 2 product, but whether or not we can watch it on DVD in the States, we appreciate the program as we have seen it on BYUTV in Utah. It may be the only way we can walk with lions in this world. Thank you for offering it.
