"The Jouberts make the absolute BEST documentaries on African wild life. This one is no exception. Absolutely stunning visually, superbly written, and the narration by Jeremy Irons is also perfect. Highly recommended for anyone who has a serious interest in conservation, wildlife, etc"
A beautiful and riveting documentary!

"My wife and I just returned from a trip to the Okavango Delta in Botswana and were greeted the first week back by this special on the National Geographic channel. While we did not have the privilege of following a leopard for 3 years we did have the opportunity to see one of these magnificent animals. Eye of the Leopard only served to reinforce our already profound respect for them. Time and time again you will be astounded to see the amazing footage that the Jouberts were able to capture. They will take you into a world that is terrifyingly violent, but somtimes extremely tender as well. Some of the moments that they catch will certainly surprise you and may even result in some self-introspection. While it is a documentary, it is told as story as captivating and suspenseful as any fictional piece of work. There are numerous moments in the show that will remain with you long after you have turned off your television. It is easily the best nature documentary that I have ever seen. Specials like these remind us how important it is to protect and conserve what wildlife is left on this earth. I can't recommend this DVD enough."
Stunning documentary

"I've just watched it on National Geographic channel. It's the most beautiful wildlife documentary I've ever seen, by a mile. I really wonder how they actually managed to get it filmed, all the most intimate moments in the leopard's life at an arm's reach. Superb shots, wonderful storyline, great commentary (Jeremy Irons)."
Wildly touching!

"This superb documentary guides you through the life of a beautiful and playful leopardess in Botswana, from small cub to young adult. The story develops around her interaction with other animals ---to acquire the skills needed to survive--- and her adaptation to the environment. Other leopards (including her mother), squirrels, wild pigs, deer, baboons, hyenas, and lions contribute to this film. It contains amazing scenes and shows incredible behaviors that you would never imagine. I felt great empathy for this wild star and enjoyed every bit of the film."
