Nowhere to hide - Etosha


Consisting of saline desert, savannah and woodlands, the Etosha National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Its definitive feature is the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow depression. For the greater part of the year the pan is a bleak expanse of white cracked mud which shimmers with mirages on most days. 

In Etosha there is nowhere to hide and the lions have learned that desert storms conceal their scent and panic their prey. We filmed this specific lion behaviour, as they stalked zebra, especially during the peak of the dry season in September and October when game congregates around waterholes. Here is a short glimpse in video. 

If you've an HDR compatible screen, you can watch the video in 4K HDR for deeper colours and contrast.
