Lionsrock - Return of the King

Lionsrock - Die Heimkehr des Königs

In February 2008 a unique wildlife reserve of 1,250 hectares was established around Lionsrock, South Africa, with the aim of returning lions and other big cats to the land of their ancestors. Most are from Europe, from rundown zoos or circuses, removed to dubious holding pens like the dilapidated Panterabig cats' asylum in the Netherlands. From here a rescued lion family are sedated and air-freighted to a perfect savanna landscape, where for the first time they can be released, free, into their natural environment. This heartwarming and joyful portrait of Lionsrock with its dedicated team also features ostriches, weaver birds, ground squirrels and other African wildlife sharing the natural habitat where the lions' ancestors once thrived. And - for the first time on TV - this film shows root canal treatment on Kongo, a majestic lion male!
