"The Flood"
Premieres Sunday, November 25 at 8 PM ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD
 
          Set in the heart of Africa’s Okavango Delta wilderness, The Flood (narrated by Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett) tells an enchanting story of life around a wild paradise like no other on earth. Surrounded by the unforgiving Kalahari Desert, the Okavango Delta is a lush, vibrant oasis that pulses with life each year as the great flood rejuvenates the land with the return of water.

        Witness how incredible animals – like leopards, elephants, lions, hippos and more – adapt to this unpredictable and changing landscape. When the lands are flooded, the Okavango Delta is both a sanctuary and a trap, giving and taking life in equal measure. Then, like a living, breathing ecosystem, the waters soon recede and life becomes about one thing – survival. The fate of the tens of thousands of animals that live in this place of spectacular natural drama is at stake.

          “I am thrilled to be teaming up with National Geographic on this beautiful celebration of one of the planet’s last great wildernesses,” said Bassett. “I found the stories of these resilient, beautiful animals so fascinating and relatable. I hope that viewers are drawn into this rarely seen kingdom in a way that inspires them to help protect it for years to come.”
