Deep within Africa's heart lies the Zambezi Valley. At the center of this wilderness lies a great lake, an Eden like nowhere else on earth. Here we meet three males lions; Takunda, Gombwe and Zindoga.
They are coming into their prime, but still have much to prove. They must forge strong bonds with this new area's resident pride headed by lioness Nobuhle, and navigate the dangers of this unique wilderness to become true pride males and rulers of this land.
The males instincts have driven them to become dominant, assertive and also rather persistent at times. They each look for a chance to pass on their genes amongst the pride females, but the lionesses remain hesitant. They must ensure these three are suitable mates and pride males. Only once satisfied by their fitness and ability will they accept them and sire their offspring. It's not long before the aged king gives up his pride and moves on, leaving the 3 5 year olds to prove their worth. This comes with brutal fighting and persistence.
