Relentless Enemies. Lions and Buffalo

The opportunity to witness these battles is a rare chance to see life so transparently on the edge. The intensity and rawness of this hunting is unique.

By Dereck and Beverly Joubert

Narration by Jeremy Iron

In an amazing place called Duba Plains in Botswana, a relatively new island is home to three prides of lions and just over a thousand buffalo. The interactions that happen each day are intense. Three prides compete for the prey but far from being a one sided relationship where lions hunt from the herd, it has become a battle between them with lions often being chased and occasionally killed as well.

The intensity and rawness of this, almost exclusively daytime, hunting, is unique. But the opportunity to witness there battles is a rare chance to see and analyze what makes Africa so interesting to us, the chance to see life so transparently on the edge and to think about why we are so fascinated by these extremes.

Dereck and Beverly Joubert, recently nominated “Explorers-in-Residence" at the National Geographic Society are multiply awarded filmmakers, photographers, writers and conservationists. Their prime goal in life is to use their particular talents to enhance conservation and efforts to inspire other people to take care of the planet. Through their films they show a side of the natural world that is often hidden to people, and they explore the meanings, and relevance of the natural world to each and every one of us.

The Relentless Enemies story is also published as a 175 page book with 300 images.
