Valley Of The Golden Baboons

  • Published 1 year ago

There is a valley in Africa forgotten in time. It is so remote and isolated that even nature does not follow its usual pattern here.

Flooded by summer rain, the fertile plains turn to dust and burn to a crisp in the dry season. This is what makes the Luangwa River a slender lifeline for the wildlife that must drink from its banks.

The crafty Yellow Baboon lives in the area. The documentary follows the life of a large family of baboons, and shows their everyday struggle.

Some might say that African wildlife doesn’t get harsher or more cruel than this. When the extreme seasons reduce the river to a trickle, each animal is in fear of its life.

During the dry season, yellow baboons have to fear for their life due to many predators, as well as the living conditions.
