From the Inside Flap
Join a unique expedition to the most extreme parts of this mysterious continent. David Attenborough and the award-winning BBC Natural History Unit embark on a landmark new BBC One series, painting a breathtaking portrait of Africa as never before caught on film. This lavish and unmissable companion to the BBC One series by the acclaimed natural history writer and former BBC Natural History producer, Michael Bright, reveals the undiscovered side of Africa's five distinctive regions. This is a spectacular journey through a vast and diverse continent in all its beautiful and unexpected abundance. Inspiring photography captures unprecedented wildlife behaviour, mesmerising new creatures and magical landscapes that will astound, captivate, and challenge what you think you know about Africa. Witness the drama of eagles catching giant bats on the wing, lizards stalking their prey on the backs of lions and a dramatic giraffe fight. Share the discovery of the world's rarest fish species and the first-ever access to an island sanctuary of the elusive African penguin. Marvel at a butterfly superhighway and a jungle floor that glows in the dark. This is one of the first books to include images that come to life on your smartphone or tablet.
