Something form the nature itself
11 June 2010 | by road_x4See all my reviews

I first got to know about this TV-series last summer, when I saw a commercial on Animal Planet. It was about a guy who decided to go and live into the wild along and amongst lions. "Damn, that has got to be a cool show", I said to myself. Yet when I saw what was this show really about, it left me dreaming about African Safari. And something at least a bit close to that kind of experience.

The show is not only a regular lion round-about, it brings a much more important message - the connection of human and the wildest you can imagine nature. Nature lovers or not, everyone should see this show just to realize how related to it we all are.

The filming group is wonderful, and the main guy (I can't find words to describe him) Dave Salmoni is just amazing to watch.

Easily 10/10, and after the end you just want it to continue.
