Witness the obstacles Kevin faces, from bureaucratic hurdles that threaten the move to the physical challenges of getting 27 lions, 14 spotted hyenas, and four black leopards in the van during these truly wild road trips.

After months of bureaucratic red tape, Kevin Richardson has finally received permission to move his family of lions, hyenas, and black leopards to a new sanctuary on the edge of the 45,000-acre Dinokeng Reserve.

Follow Kevin and a team of conservationists as they chase down runaway beasts, calm nervous travelers, and attempt to thwart a hyena breakout before taking on the biggest challenge of all: acclimating them to their new home.
