Okavango - River of Dreams - Episode 2: Limbo
The Okavango in Botswana in Southern Africa is one of the greatest rivers on Earth – and it is truly unique. Its “Middle world” is a unique landscape - here, the river is most dynamic and alive, feeding, and being fed on, where massive herds of elephants flood in with the water and Pied kingfishers dive from over 10 metres high to catch minnows under water. Young nomadic lions try to challenge a hippo that came onto land. In an extraordinary sequence, a hyena and a warthog family share neighbouring dens, helping each other by keeping an eye on potentially threatening predators. The main character here is the King, a male lion who, with his brother, rules these floodplains and ultimately hunts huge buffalo through the waters.
