National Geographic does what National Geographic has done so many times before: deliver on their promise to show viewers a remarkably scenic tour of the greatest cats in the world. Relying on the talented Steve Winter, National Geographic takes us on the hunt of the tiger. We journey to India and learn why the Tiger is disappearing from the forest. We journey to Sumatra and then to Thailand.
The footage is remarkable. You will be surprised by how intelligent the tiger can be. It learns quickly, doesn’t make the same mistake twice and knows when it is in danger intuitively. The tigers come right up to Steve Winter and he is not afraid. They know that he is not a threat and that he is not dinner – partially because Steve Winter knows to read their body language and retreat when they are hungry or feeling threatened.
If you are someone who enjoys learning about the dangerous, rare animal of the world and doing so from their couch: this is for you. It will whet your appetite to travel to Asia and meet the tigers one-on-one.
Steve Winter is an award-winning wildlife photographer known for innovative technology and his uncanny ability to get up-close images of the world’s most elusive animals.
Steve Winter is not hurt during the making of this National Geographic documentary film, although he does come close on a few occasions.
