Dynasties premieres on DStv
A wildlife series - Dynasties that was filmed in Zimbabwe over four years at Mana Pools National Park was premiered on DStv's BBC Earth channel last Sunday and is now available on DStv Catch Up.

Bushlife Safaris who offer a wide range of wilderness-based operations at Mana Pools National Park said they were delighted with the culmination of four years' work with David Attenborough and the BBC Earth production team in the filming of the series.

Bushlife Safari owners, Nick and Desiree Murray and their team of expert guides worked alongside the BBC Natural History Unit, Attenborough and a pack of Painted Wolves (Lycaon Pictus), also known as African Wild Dogs or Cape Hunting Dogs.

"It has been a great honour and adventure to have worked alongside Sir David (Attenborough) and the BBC film crew while filming the Painted Wolves of Vundu Camp, Bushlife Safaris.

"We're exceptionally grateful for the BBC's support in elevating global awareness for the conservation and protection of this endangered species," commented Nick.

Said BBC: "Never before has a landmark offered audiences the opportunity to follow the lives of animals in such detail — each fighting against overwhelming odds for their own survival and future of their families. These are some of the most dramatic and intense stories of their kind ever told."

Dynasties is now available for DStv Premium customers to stream or download from Catch Up on DStv Now.

In celebration of the launch of the new series, Bushlife Safaris said they will be hosting an exclusive premiere for selected guests to showcase the Dynasties — Painted Wolves episode.
