Africa's Super Seven

Synopsis: On the northern bank of the Sand River in the Mala-Mala Game Reserve in South Africa, seven magnificent creatures reside in an area the size of Manhattan Island. Tracking them for 24 hours we reveal the invisible threads that bind them together in a never-ending daily drama. This action-packed film will show how seven individual stories become one, how the animals move in and out of one another's lives in the course of a single day. Sometimes their encounters happen just by chance, at other times they are intent on stalking each other down. In all cases whenever they meet the encounter is always riveting. Each animal has different strengths, even some weaknesses, but seeing them in action is always impressive. Tracking them through one day and one night we witness their dealings with the neighbours from hell, staking their territory, stalking the same prey, risking their lives and cautiously interacting with or avoiding each other. This is a privileged and rare glimpse into the complex

In Africa anything can happen

in just one day...

especially when seven of its greatest

wild animals encounter each other.

These are seven magnificent

characters who surpass all others ...

seven animals who rule the African bush.

Over 24 hours, from day to night,

the action never stops.

The Cheetah is the champion sprinter

able to take down the fastest prey.

But can she teach her cubs

how to hunt for themselves today?

Or will the Hyena steal their prey.

She's a clever

opportunist, with cubs too...

...and will do whatever

it takes to keep them alive.

The Lion is notjust the biggest of

Africa's cats; it's also a team player.

And tonight the gang is on the hunt.

The Buffalo will have to be on guard.

But this quiet herbivore has a mean

temper and travels in a large herd ...

a force to be reckoned with.

The Rhino also has formidable power.

But poor eyesight and

a nervous disposition

means she's the wildcard of the bunch.

But nothing is more dangerous

than a temperamental Elephant

especially a young bull with too

much energy and not enough sense.

And then, thereps the Leopard,

the Prince of Stealth.

He lives in the shadows and

is always ready to pounce.

Seven super animals.

One place.

One single day.

There's no better place to

followAfrica's Super Seven

than in South Africa's

Mala Mala game reserve

... a vast stretch of wilderness

teeming with wildlife.

And through it all runs

another superb feature

the Sand River, where our

24-hour story begins...

Itps mid-afternoon, three o' clock.

For wildlife this is the

real start of an African day.

Theypre emerging from

their shady retreats to

make the most of the remaining daylight.

Here, you must be prepared for anything.

No two days are ever the same ...

Two of the Super Seven

are already at the river.

Elephants are social animals.

The river is one of

their favourite spots.

And this cat is full of surprises.

The Lion is the most

formidable hunter here.

The habitat beside the river is

pristine South African bushveld -

ideal for the greatest ambush hunter

of them all- the Leopard.

He is the master of the treetops

but he will be coming

down soon, to hunt.

African Buffalo also like the bushveld.

This herd is a hundred strong.

And they're on the move to

the river for their daily drink.

These animals have strength in numbers.

The young, the old and the weak are all

protected by the stronger group members.

Here there is always someone

to watch your back.

That's vital for this young female.

Sheps heavily pregnant

with her first calf.

She could go into labour at any time.

This is a vulnerable moment-

predators will prey on her newborn.

This Hyena Mum is also raising a family.

Her growing cubs have a

never-ending hunger for milk.

At nine months theypre now quite big.

It will be another six months

before they're completely weaned.

To protect her young from predators

she wonpt bring meat back to the den.

lnstead she feeds herself regularly

to keep a fresh supply of milk flowing.

Today she must leave them, to go hunt.

And this, she must do on her own.

Unlike most hyena mumps she does

not have a clan to help her hunt

or protect her young when she's away.

This is a big day for

the cheetah mother.

Sheps about to give her

cubs a hunting lesson.

But first the young ones need

to charge their batteries.

Sprinting is thirsty work.

The young cheetahs have a whole

world to explore and need to learn

which animals are prey and

which are best left alone.

Back at the river the Rhino and her mate

have stumbled across something disturbing.
