WILDLIFE -- Survivors of the Plains: Lions of Tsavo

A new style of living in a parched land

A national park in Kenya has become a home to a unique population of lions. Governed by an unforgiving climate, the big cats have had to adapt to survive in their parched environment.
During the long dry season, few herbivores brave Tsavo's barren plains. With little to go round, the park's big cats have taken to hunting alone. Even dominant pride males will go it alone when prey is in short supply. Respite for the big cats only comes when the rainy season commences. Fresh grass attracts the mighty African buffalo to the lion's domain. To take on the powerful buffalo, the lone hunting lions must come together and work as a team. Old grudges will even be put to the side when facing their most fearsome prey.
