In the early eighties three magnificent male lions marched into Saut in northern Botswana, and the area changed forever. For the next three years they dominated, fighting off other males, mating with the resident females and protecting their pride of lionesses and new cubs against any threat. One young cup the Jouberts called Tau soon becomes the focus of the story and it is through his eyes that the complex society of a lion pride is revealed. Watch the lions stalk the night, battle with hyenas for the possession of carcasses and bring down gigantic buffalo in contests that last for hours. They are not only socially complex societies but also truly the masters of the African night.
