BBC Documentaries Wild Africa

Wild Africa takes audiences on a spectacular journey across, over and through the magical realms of the wildest continent on earth. Audiences will fly along the Great Rift Valley following the twisting rivers to discover a family of elephants on their epic search for water. Other animals featured include hungry crocodiles as they wait at the water holes for the annual wildebeest migration on the savannahs of the Serengeti; a family of mountain gorillas in the forests of Rwanda and thousands of flamingos performing an extraordinary mating display in the volcanic Lake Bogoria. From the highest snow-covered mountains in Kenya, along great rivers, into steamy rainforests and wide-open savannahs, Wild Africa reveals the striking contrast of stunning deserts beside wild oceans and the sunlit abundance of the coral reefs. Water, the interconnecting force of this kingdom, serves as a guide, conjuring up life wherever it journeys. Wild Africa is an adventure where you will truly believe the real world is more extraordinary and awe-inspiring than any fiction.
