National Geographic: African Odyssey


in terms of threats to its survival.

And we're coming back to see

what we can do to ensure

that future generations

come to love the area

and its wildlife the way we love it.

The Owenses made their camp

on an ancient, dry riverbed.

Slight depressions support islands

of trees that offer protection

from the searing sun and wind.

Oh, great! Success.

There's Deception Valley.

Does it ever need rain.

the most important studies of

hyenas and lions ever

undertaken in the Kalahari.

their role as conservationists led to

conflicts with the Botswana government

conflicts that would eventually

threaten their scientific careers.

As Delia nears their former

tree-island camp,

she wonders it has been

destroyed by storm or fire.

I got stuck in the mud.

Did you really?

It wasn't that bad a thing.

You would have gotten right out,

but it took me three tries.

Guess what I have.


A complete stereophonic sound system.

For calling the lions?

To call the lions.

Well, that will be fun.

We can play that tonight...

I also have a male and female mating.

Mating. That's...

Well, well, well.

I wondered how I'd mind the dust

and the grime and everything,

but it looks bloody beautiful,
