A Place in the Wild

Tuesday, 12 May 2009, 8:00PM – 9:00PM

Englishmen Batian Craig and Richard Vigne have taken on the challenge of a lifetime – running 90,000 acre wildlife conservancy in the heart of Kenya.

A Place In The Wild goes behind the scenes at the magnificent Ol Pejeta reserve and follows the twosome as they work tirelessly to protect and conserve over 400 of Africa’s most endangered species.

It’s a massive undertaking and, to realise their dream of transforming Ol Pejeta in to a world-class reserve, the intrepid duo have their work cut out for them.

In tonight’s episode, Batian enlists the help of lion-expert Elaine Matteson after a hungry lioness helps herself to a local farmer’s cattle. The team also have the tall order of moving a giraffe, while a baby elephant is rehoused to an orphanage in Nairobi. Over at Sweetwater sanctuary a pair of baby chimpanzees have a bumpy ride when they are integrated in to an adult group.
