World Premiere Screening of Nat Geo WILD's Savage Kingdom mini-series
Be the first to get an unprecedented glimpse at warring animal clans battling for survival in a remote region of Botswana that is drying up after years of flood-soaked abundance. The daily clashes play out like Game of Thrones, but the royal families here are lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs. There will be a special guest introduction by Charles Dance, Narrator and Emmynominated actor on Game of Thrones and a unique chance to hear from the creators of this ground-breaking series. The screening will be followed by a reception.
