SAVAGE KINGDOM features Tsebe, the lion queen of Mombo in Northern Botswana, leading her lionesses through battles against the dreaded hyenas who are struggling to regain their power. They too must fight off the dreaded hyenas, Mogolo and her pack of wild dogs and Motshidi, a reclusive leopard.
As you would expect from a series called SAVAGE KINGDOM this is no Disney’s Lion King as animals are fight for their right at survival. While there are births such as a new cub named Khutlo there are also deaths.
Like any National Geographic production the expert cinematography features breathtaking panning shots of life on the Savannah as it sets its scene. Giraffes, baboons and all kinds of creatures make their appearance.
The Koalition spoke to Director of Photography, Alex Cooke about returning to the series and more.
Season four of Savage Kingdom premieres Friday, August 14th, at 9:00 pm ET for a three-week, six-episode television event on National Geographic. Each night will include two back-to-back hour-long episodes.
