About the Show
Against the dramatic backdrop of riverine forests and wildlife-rich floodplains of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Swamp Troop takes us into the heart of baboon society. We meet Boro, the troop’s alpha male, who brutally dispatches rivals, and jealously guards mating rights with fertile females. In a land where baboons must swim to survive, winter floods bring peril. A dangerous stranger threatens Boro and his two surviving infants. Tragedy strikes when Boro is toppled and disease claims the life of one of the infants. Without progeny, Boro’s reign as alpha is meaningless, he must do what he can to protect his remaining daughter.
