Lions are some of the most dangerous animals known to man. BUT there is one man who is part of their pride. Kevin Richardson, an outdoorsman who lives just 30 miles north of Johannesburg, has an amazing ability to communicate with some of Africas most feared predators. His conservation area is home to lions, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards and panthers. He is able to live with them, sleep curled up with them, swim with lionesses, caress cubs and tussle with males. This exciting and touching series will take viewers on a journey to the stunning African wilderness, giving them an exclusive insight into the life of the real Lion Whisperer.
I applaud this man. He proves that animals are not “man eaters” or “emotionless” and that they have a heart, show love, and seek companionship.
This is all possible due to years of hard work and study in understanding each of these lions, what I love about Kevin is his honesty in that he doesn’t proclaim to be some lion tamer, he knows very well you can’t tame lions, that some day maybe a lion will have a bad day and it could go wrong for him, but what he does is put trust in the bond he’s built with them for years and years – he’s not running around all the places saying he can magically tame lions, no, he simply knows HIS lions that he’s worked hard to build a bond and trust with. Kevin is realistic about his abilities, that’s what really sets him apart.
At 12:38 .. respect & trust is its highest level. It really bring tears in my eyes to see the most dangerous predictor in such role. Hats off to you kavin. No words to respect your effort. Just love you for what you are doing. May God give you some of year’s from my life to enlight there hope to share this earth with us some more time. Tons of respect & love from India.
This is the perfect example how a marriage between two people should be–with utmost patience and loving care get to know each other and their personalities.Get to appreciate their uniqueness and let them be who they are–and in live in perfect harmony.
Wanted to come back and watch an old documentary that I hadn’t seen yet and I didn’t realise it would show the start of Kevin’s story with Meg and Amy… Now that Amy has passed on it’s making me really emotional to see them all together. You can see the affection they all have for eachother.
