Dynasties: Featuring Mana Pools with David Attenborough

Sir David Attenborough takes us on a new journey of discovery focusing on the struggles endured by five families of endangered species including chimpanzees, tigers, penguins, lions and painted wolves (wild dogs) from Mana Pools Zimbabwe.

Our planet is changing at an extraordinary rate with unpredictable global weather patterns, human interference and urbanisation, the habitats these animals live in are coming under increasing pressure.

Travel from the plains of Africa to the jungles of India, from the edge of the Sahara to the frozen wastes of Antarctica. Watch leaders battle rivals for their crown, feuds tearing families apart and parents risking their lives to protect offspring from the coldest and cruellest winter on earth.

Dynasties, the most intimate and intense stories of five extraordinary animals in heroic battles against the odds.

Dynasties The Story Of Five Families

BBC Earth bring you the greatly anticipated documentary, Dynasties which airs at 20h30 on BBC One as from Sunday 11 November 2018. On Sunday 25 November we'll meet 'Charm" the Defender and her family the Marsh Pride from the Masai Mara in Kenya. Then the BIG one we can't wait for, on Sunday 2 December, watch 'Blacktip' the Painted Wolf (Wild Dog) and her treacherous family from Mana Pools in Zimbabwe .

“It’s raising people’s passion and people’s belief and people’s desire to recognise that animals have a right to some sort of space...” – Sir David Attenborough

Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe is the stage on which the drama of the Painted Wolves episode will unfold. Mana Pools is a truly a magical destination and Tailormade Africa favourite (not biased at all), best explored on foot, the most natural form of safari.

The Zambezi floodplains have a certain tranquillity to them where visitors and wildlife coexist in an almost inexplicable harmony.

Tracking Wild Dogs on a walking safari is something every wildlife and safari enthusiast should tick off their bucket-list and there is no better place to do this than Mana Pools.

Don't forget to catch the Painted Wolves episode which is scheduled to air on Sunday 2nd December and is likely to be a drama pulling you to the edge of your seat.
