The Lions that took to Water...

In the Okavango Delta, lions are doing something unexpected — they have taken to water and become supreme swimmers.

Animal Planet's Swimming Lions introduces people to the team of scientists — led by Christiaan and Hanlie Winterbach — who are engaged in an ongoing quest to understand this quirky leonine behavior.

Swimming Lions shows the problems that lions in the region face and what makes them stay in such a challenging environment where they must struggle to survive.

During the program, people also meet Sadu, a lioness who has successfully adapted to her unusual environment and passes her skill on to eager cubs.
