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 eighteen month journey following the lives of these secretive big cats offers a rare glimpse into an otherwise hidden world.
This programme aired on Nat Geo WILD as Leopard: Ultimate Survivor during Big Cat Week 2014.
