‘Africa’s Wild Havens’ Preview Wednesday On Smithsonian Channel

AFRICA’S WILD HAVENS: MARULA TREE
Premieres Wednesday, September 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT
The final episode goes to the Manyeleti Nature Reserve near the famous Kruger National Park in South Africa. There, in the heart of the African Savanna is the marula tree. It is known as the Tree of Life because it provides the human and wild inhabitants of Africa with life’s staples – food, shelter and medicine. This is a tough landscape, where survival is a vicious competition in which only the strongest and most cunning survive. Large cats carve out their territories to suit their lifestyle. A coalition of cheetah brothers takes to the open plains where they survey the herds from the rise of an old termite mound. Young Tintswalo lions follow their parents and learn to hunt the larger herbivorous buffalos that come to the Manyeleti from the Kruger to find water. All these scenes play out under the tall marula trees that dot the savanna.
