About the Show

This is more than the saga of a perilous journey - it’s a story of a mother’s bond, a species’ endurance, and one extraordinary calf’s breathtaking tale of survival. Within moments of birth, a wildebeest calf is seized by a lioness. What should be the end of this story is just the beginning. Instinct drives the calf to bond with the nearest warm body: the lioness. By a fluke so rare it’s never been filmed before, the lioness bonds in return. See the world through the eyes of this newborn calf as it runs an obstacle course of hazards: cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, crocodiles - and a lion that defies nature.
