Nominated for "Best in People & Nature" at both Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival and International Wildlife Film Festival 2011. "Lion Warriors" a National Geographic Wild special for Big Cat Week by Original Godal Productions, is an important story about ancient and modern cultures colliding - and man and beast's struggle for survival on the great plains below Mt Kilimanjaro - where lions and traditional Maasai warriors both face extinction - or a new future together.

'Lion Warriors' is the story of conflict between Maasai warriors and the declining lion population in Maasailand Kenya. Only 200 lions remain in Maasailand, and if the numbers drop any lower the lions cannot recover.

This sensitive and unusual film reveals both sides of the story - and captures firsthand the struggle of modern-day Maasai who are trying to reinvent their traditions to help save the lions they've historically prided themselves on killing.
