The World Lion Day Schedule:

INTO THE LION'S DEN - From 10 AM - 12 PM ET/PT Follow Animal Planet's Large Predator Expert Dave Salmoni on an adrenaline-pumping trek deep into the territory of a pride of wild lions.

INTO THE PRIDE - From 12 - 5 PM ET/PT Animal Planet's Large Predator Expert Dave Salmoni heads deep into the African bush on a double mission: to return to his wild roots and to help save a rogue pride of lions from elimination.
