David Attenborough presents this five-part BBC natural history series exploring the stunning landscapes and undiscovered creatures of Africa's five major regions. Using state-of-the-art technology, cameramen journey across the length and breadth of the continent, from the Atlas Mountains to the Cape of Good Hope, documenting previously unseen wildlife behaviour, discovering strange new creatures, and uncovering an array of spectacular, never-before-filmed locations.

The episodes are arranged 'regionally' rather than by habitat. The BBC team, and in four years, visit some of the striking places in Africa from the Atlas Mountains in North Africa to the Cape of Good Hope in the south to bring us some of the extraordinary wildlife spectacles this ancient continent has yet to offer. Some of these unforgettable events are: two male giraffes fighting in Nambia, black rhinos socializing near a waterhole in the cover of darkness in Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique, daring lizards catching flies off sleeping lions, chimpanzees using branches to dig honeycombs out of tree barks while the young ones watching and learning, silver ants battling the scorching the brutal African sun to gather food in just 10 minutes, spectacular sand dunes shifting which took months to video, etc. Really really amazing stuff.
In the extra materials, you get to learn what patience, endurance, dedication, and professionalism it all took in order to produce such top notch film making. I really take my hat to all the BBC team members who were involved in this project.
And yeah Sir David Attenborough is the narrator (who also appears in person in some of the episodes). What a joy it was to hear his voice : )
I enjoyed Africa immensely and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in wildlife documentary films. Perfect.
Using starlight camerawork, the rhinos. reveal an unexpected social side, gathering at night around a waterhole, and seemingly communicating picked up by novel sound techniques. The greatest wildlife continent on the planet with its constantly changing environment, climate and landscapes are visualised in a bewildering display. David Attenborough's narration links the scenes with his umatchable professionalism and dulcet style. It is one of inspiration and information without being over educational, often told more as a story, from happy to sometimes upsetting scenes. His forecast for the continent with the changes occurring so rapidly is quite forboding. The music I found unobtrusive but may not be to everyone's taste. The 'Eye To Eye' sections at the end of each episode were revealing in the 'this is how we did it' mode. An extremely enjoyable experience that will lend to repeat viewing.
Well this is NOTHING like you saw before!
The photography in this series is more stunning than ever – and happily, after each episode, there is a featurette (“Eye to Eye”) on the filming.
From underground caves, lions and lizards, male giraffes fighting, yellow helmet picathartes birds building nests, naked mole rats and metallic ants to chimpanzees, gelada baboons, strange shoebil birds, buffalo and a blind baby rhino that will bring tears to your eyes. An outstanding DVD – narrated by the iconic David Attenborough.
Simply a must!

Although I love Africa, the picture advertised says it also includes digital copy, it does not. Only Blu Ray, not digital copyPublished 1 month ago by Jimpy
