Nature: The White Lions
Nature: The White Lions tracks two cubs as they struggle to survive all the dangers they are faced with in South Africa’s Kruger National Park. White lions are among the most rare and treasured animals in the world. Rarer still is their survival in the wild. Their white color stands out in Africa’s wild bush country, increasing their risk of being targeted and killed by rival predators and marauding adult male lions.
Two white cubs, sisters, have beaten the odds, surviving all the challenges of their youth with the help of two remarkable lionesses: their mother, Matimba, and their aunt, Khanya, a mother with two young tawny cubs of her own. Without an adult male lion to protect their small pride, Matimba and Khanya must rely solely on their own knowledge, strength and courage to protect their family.
Watch the adventures of the small, resourceful pride tonight at 8pm on WGBH 2. More airings
