Plot Synopsis

Narrated by Charles Dance, SAVAGE KINGDOM: UPRISING is a four-part documentary series that takes a rare look at warring animal clans battling for survival in a remote region of Africa that is drying up after years of flood-soaked abundance. The winners are rewarded with the richest hunting grounds in the kingdom, while the losers are fated to exile...or even death. Now, SAVAGE KINGDOM delves deeper into the individual characters and reveals the life-and-death decisions that drive survival in their ruthless and unpredictable world. The story continues as sons plot to overthrow fathers, clans seek revenge on their enemies and new arrivals enter the kingdom to stake their claim. Will the aging lion king Sekekama hold on to his bloody crown? Has the leopard prince Neo inherited enough talent from his mother to survive? How will the lions of the Northern Pride wreak their revenge on queen Matsumi? Leaders will rise and factions will fall. No one is safe. The series opens with Male lion Sekekama, the undisputed king of the Marsh Pride, contending with his three eldest sons who are hungry for power. On the outskirts of their territory, the Northern Pride is growing a bloodthirsty lion army, preparing for revenge against its sworn enemy. Meanwhile, the kingdom's deadliest leopard assassin, Saba, works tirelessly to make sure her only son follows in her deadly footsteps.
On Friday, December 15, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT as part of the network's BIG CAT WEEK, Nat Geo Wild premiered "King Slayers," the season finale of SAVAGE KINGDOM: UPRISING. The Marsh Pride's aging king, Sekekama, is forced to lead his family into hostile territory on a mission to save them from a vicious drought gripping the kingdom. His great gamble leads him into a bloody contest against rivals old and new. But his control over one treacherous son will determine Sekekama's hold on power, and the future of his own legacy.
