Shamwari: A Lion Awakes (2008)
Our vet Johan has to run for his life when a darted lion wakes up unexpectedly. He tries to hold it down as long as possible to give the rest of the team time to get to safety. It means putting his own life at risk.
The struggle continues to get our baby elephant Themba to drink milk. Time is running out. If we can’t get fluids into him then he will surely die.
And the game-capture team is tackling the world’s deadliest animal, the hippo. They get a little too close for comfort when it turns its jaws towards the loading vehicle. And a torrential downpour causes havoc at the animal hospital as Melvin our orphaned giraffe experiences rain for the first time and gets completely water logged.
