Savage Kingdom: Dawn of Darkness

Experience wildlife on the African savannah like never before. Here, battles are fought ruthlessly every day in an effort to survive. In Savage Kingdom: Dawn of Darkness we’ll follow the top predators of the food chains; some of them are lions, leopards and hyenas.

In their contests for food and power, we’ll get to see a lion pride going head to head with packs of hyenas and a leopard forced to make a choice based around her mate or her own future. Life on the savannah is a calculated risk between the dangers of getting hurt and the probabilities of surviving.

Narrated by Charles dance (popularly known for his role as Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones) the nature documentary excels in bringing raw wildlife footage to the viewer. Filmed in Mombo, Northern Botswana, peace never lasts long, and power always comes with a price.
