Africa's Fishing Leopards

Episode 1 of 10

Wildlife documentary. David Attenborough narrates the story of a leopard mother and her two cubs as they try to survive in the wilds of Botswana.

David Attenborough narrates the intimate story of a leopard mother and her two cubs.

This very special family must survive in the wilds of Botswana alongside some less-than-friendly neighbours: lions, wild dogs and hyenas. The competition for food is tough, and if they are going to make it they must learn a new skill - they must learn to fish.

This is an epic family drama. With them every step of the way is local cameraman Brad Bestelink. Brad's 18-month journey following the lives of these secretive big cats offers a rare glimpse into an otherwise hidden world.
