About The Show
A haunting call echoes across the Liuwa Plain. There is no answer, there hasn't been for years. She has no pride, no support - she alone must safeguard her own survival. Her name is Lady Liuwa, and she is the Last Lioness. Isolated by a scourge of illegal trophy hunting that wiped out the rest of her species in the region, Lady Liuwa is the only known resident lion surviving on Zambia's Liuwa Plain. For four years, cameraman Herbert Brauer watches her lonely life unfold until, in her solitude, she reaches out to him for companionship. But Herbert knows he is not the companion this lonely lioness needs - she should be amongst her own kind. Now plans for a male lion translocation have come through and there is hope for ending her isolation. For the first time in more than five years, Lady Liuwa will no longer be the last of her kind.
