A Born Free for our times, Lion Country follows the exciting work of conservationist David Youldon. Based at Antelope Park, a 3,000-acre game reserve in Zimbabwe, David and his assistants prepare captive-bred lions for release into the wild. During the series we get to know members of the park team and their feline pupils. Assuming the position of alpha male, David teaches his lions the essential hunting skills of stalking, attacking and killing. When their training is complete, they are set free in a massive 5,000-acre managed ecosystem. Will they survive in the wild?
