You've piqued my interest. I had already heard most of what Bots posted, but seems like you have more knowledge to share. At least narrow my search for me.

A few of the documentaries were filmed at Kwando but you guys can decide for yourselves.

So there is a brief bio of Mark Tennant, a short line on his celebrity status and mention of the other twat. How does this relate to the twat and the toilet roll? I have searched and can't seemed to see where and if the toilet roll has anything to do with kwando?

I'm so confused. What does his premium sized a$$ have to do with this

Was this a set up? Was he making a pit stop - thus the TP (toilet paper)and the lions found him - this seems unlikely due to seeing him crawl around the vehicle prior to seeing the lions.

Or was the TP offered as a joke for his frightened (loss of body functions)reaction to the lions???
..... or am I just thinking too much about a$$es and TP and need to find something else to do while having my am tea

Well, I did think it was just the high priced guys' usual shanagans until I heard all this talk about the backend. Inquiring minds had to get to the bottom of this.
Perhaps he should hire a new camera man to get his better side ........ or maybe that was his best side

I think thats his only side in more ways than one.

I understand his real name is Hugh Jass.

Guys, jokes aside, this is giving a huge mis-understanding of African wildlife. The day will come when an ignorant tourist will try the same antics and get taken out. I have seen it many times in Kruger where I have lost my temper with people doing stupid things. It is going to happen.
I do beleive that they have a huge backup and it would be a pity if an animal has to be killed for the sake of making a movie.

All that junk in the trunk is good for keeping his center of gravity low and strong. If he were to tip over he may have been mauled and I'm sure the poor lion would be shot before he could really enjoy the rump roast.

This guy certainly has confidence and a good ability to read behavior but when he makes a mistake it is not going to be good for him and it will be much worse for the animal, quite a selfish act.

Well said.
What a lot of viewers don't realise is the amount of humans behind the camera which as we all know will scare any wild animal away when we are on foot. I wonder how many have to date been shot because of mistakes. It certainly will not be shown on TV.

Kind of reminds me of the grizzly guy in that these guys do think they can predict wild animal behavior.
Shame that the Grizzly guys' partner was with him at the time.

I just finally gave in and watched this video.
What a jerk this guy is!
Sooner or later we will read his "surprise" obituary.

Guys, hold it right here. I have just looked at the video from Bots post and this is a copy of the original with sound effects added and titles. This is ridiculous to say the least to the person who did this. Whilst I do not retract from my own sentiments I do feel whomever did this is a complete asshole looking for his/hers own attention.

Mark,

I'm sure lots of people (rangers, clients, travel agents etc etc.,) should write to animal planet stating that the program is undoing all the good stuff they are doing via their fantastic network.....

If you are talking of the location of their filming of the program- their first series was VERY popular, that they made Series 2 and it was filmed ALL OVER africa- the serengeti, National parks of Zambia, One prominent game reserve in the Sabi Sands, with the Great white in Cape Town and Namibia too. Going by the clip from Bots- Abviously Tsavo park , Kenya....
