The Real Lion Queen

The Real Lion Queen (2013)


The circle of life is broken in Zambia’s Liuwa Plains National Park. Settlers, poachers, and professional hunters have almost wiped out the lion population, leaving just one lioness in the vast wilderness… but not for long. This is the story of “Lady Liuwa,” a lion queen without a kingdom, and Herbert Brauer, a wildlife cinematographer on a six-year journey to find her a mate in hopes of forming a new pride. It’s a mission full of setbacks and disappointments, chaos and danger, and the magic of unexpected relationships.
