Plot Synopsis

Created and produced by Simon Fuller and narrated by Lupita Nyong'o, SERENGETI is a documentary series that explores the vast, nearly untouched plains of Tanzania, highlighting the majestic animals and their day-to-day lives living together, featuring lions, zebras, baboons and cheetahs over the course of a year, and showcasing the dramatic moments that make each day of survival on the Serengeti a feat.

Soon the season of plenty will begin to fade and food will be harder to come by, putting the animals of the Serengeti to the ultimate test. With new arrivals and unexpected problems, old foes resurfacing and dangerous encounters at nearly every turn, the Serengeti will demand courage from all who call it home. In SERENGETI, the world's most captivating animals try to survive in the beautiful, demanding lands of Northern Africa, stopping at nothing to protect their offspring and prove their worthiness to their tribe. From Kali the lioness and Shani the Zebra, to Zalika the Hyena and many more, each species has their own unique story, whether dealing with their enemies or desperately searching for prey. Kali makes a big mistake and is now left completely alone to fend for herself and her cubs -- an almost impossible task in the African plains. Season 1 also features Tembo, a young male elephant struggling to take the next step on his journey into adulthood, as well as Nalla, the family matriarch juggling to lead the herd and be a mother. Across the Serengeti, Bakari the Baboon looks to honor the memory of his lost love by fiercely protecting her orphaned child. SERENGETI premiered on Sunday, August 4, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery, with a simulcast on Animal Planet.
The entire six-episode second season of SERENGETI, narrated by Lupita Nyong'o, dropped on Sunday, July 18, 2021 on discovery+, with the first two episodes making their linear TV debut late that night from 8-10pm on Discovery Channel. It is the following year, and many of the loveable familiar faces are back -- Kali, Sefu, Nalla, Tembo, Bakari and Shani -- and living their lives in their beautiful world. And as the world turns, so does the circle of life as we are introduced to Aiysha, daughter of Season 1's KiKay and her cubs along with Shani's stallion Punda, the leader and protector of the family and father to all of the babies.
