Africa

A dramatic, real-life tale of three leopards plays out in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. This is prime habitat for Africa’s most secretive big cat. Leopards normally avoid each other but this island is the common hunting ground for all three individuals as they are drawn together by the changing seasons and the movement of their prey. What unfolds is an in-depth look into their lives; following the tension, drama and, in the end, heart wrenching tragedy, as all three seek a common goal – to dominate one of the Okavango’s most prized leopard territories.
