Nature: Cheetahs & Lions cover


Two great episodes of Nature on one untamed disc! In “Desert Lions,” discover some of the world’s most intriguing and unusual populations of lions. Dr. Philip (Flip) Stander tracks the mysterious and remarkable lions of the world’s oldest desert, the Namib. Rarely seen, little understood, the lions were once wiped out, but now have returned! In “Cheetah Orphans,” veteran wildlife filmmaker Simon King takes on a new role: surrogate mother! After their cheetah mother is killed by a lion, Simon assumes the parenting responsibilities for her cubs, Toki and Sambu — a life changing experience that Simon describes as “privileged, humbling and enriching.” Hand-rearing the brothers, teaching them the life skills cheetahs need to survive, and observing the cubs as they pass through key stages of their development, Simon’s efforts to rehabilitate the cheetahs and reintroduce them to the world of wild cheetahs is filled with delight but also heartbreak.
