Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom (1963-1988): Rulers of the Kalahari  (1963)

One of the most desolate corners of the Wild kingdom is the Kalahari, a huge desert in Southern Africa.  There are three rulers in the Kalahari, the lion, the cheetah and the African bushman.  This primative man (1963 quote!) still leads a stone-age existence.  This is the story of their struggle for survival in a harsh, barren environment and of the special relationship between bushman and lion.
