DESCRIPTION:
(from Smithsonian Channel's press release, August 2016) A new Smithsonian Channel three-part series tells stories of endurance and survival of Africa's most iconic symbols of natural history. Three ultimate predators - a pride of lions, a territorial leopard, and a cheetah mother - play out their lives in the shadows of three impressive trees: the sausage tree in Zambia, the camelthorn tree in South Africa, and the marula tree in the Manyeleti. AFRICA'S WILD HAVENS premieres Wednesday, August 31 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Each episode of AFRICA'S WILD HAVENS was filmed using the latest technology, including drones for aerial shots and time-lapse cameras to capture behaviors and action that can't be seen by the naked eye. Remote cameras were placed in trees to capture, from the perspective of the tree, animals in and under it.
