saving sirga 6 x 60' 


Filmed over three years and with unrivalled intimacy, this ground-breaking series delves into the heart of an extraordinary friendship between a man and a lioness, and reveals what it takes to walk and hunt with a lion.
Valentin Gruener found Sirga as a ten-day old cub, dehydrated and dying in a lion enclosure on Grasslands Game Farm in the Kalahari Desert of Botswana. Instead of letting nature take its course, he rescued her and raised her by hand.

But rescuing her is not enough. How does he save Sirga from a lifetime in captivity?

Join Val as he helps Sirga re-discover her wildness and hunt her own food, to win a chance at a free life and a hunting ground of her own.

This unforgettable story set against the backdrop of the magnificent Kalahari Desert and a brutal conflict between farmers and predators, takes an in-depth look at a remarkable cross-species bond, the consequences inherent in raising a lion cub by hand, and the passion and commitment that is needed to save just one lion.
