Plot Synopsis

WILD WIVES OF AFRICA follows female animals -- Cathy the hippo, Victoria the cheetah, Lauren the lioness, Josie the baboon, Esther the elephant, and more -- as they live in the African savannah while hunting to feed their young, mating with the boys, and protecting their turf. In "Killer Queen," Lauren the lioness has to hunt to feed herself and her family; Victoria the female cheetah is better at hunting but her catch is often stolen; and Esther the female elephant needs more than two hundred kilos of food per day. In "The Mating Game," Cathy the hippo is wooed by a male as part of the hippo's private mating dance; Josie the baboon doesn't care much for privacy, just so long as she finds a mate; and female ostrich watch as they're courted by dancing males. In "Do or Die," Victoria the female cheetah must protect and provide for her young while simultaneously teaching them how to hunt and fend for themselves; and Lauren the lioness forms a pride with her sister and two male lions. In "Young & Restless," Cathy the hippo trudges back to her group of bitter and battling hippopotamuses and overcrowded conditions to raise her son; Victoria bravely raises her four baby cheetahs alone; and Lauren and her sisters struggle to raise two young lion cubs without the help of pride males.
