  • KINGDOM OF THE APES

DESCRIPTION

Deep in the disappearing jungles of Africa, the secrets of the most mesmerizing and endangered creatures on this planet are being revealed.  

Our closest cousins – chimpanzees and gorillas – are living out dramas that are totally epic, and yet startlingly familiar.  

Young warriors go to war, kings rise and fall, mothers tenderly raise their young – preparing them for the battles ahead. 

These creatures truly have stories to tell. We knew they were intelligent. But now we know they have personalities and culture. 

Kingdom of the Apes shows that much of human behaviour originated among these animals, our kindred spirits. 

In these unique, character-driven stories, the tales of apes will touch your heart and blow your mind.
