This series has been a mesmerising and unique journey through five regions of an amazingly diverse continent, taking us seamlessly from its wild terrain and landscapes to intimate encounters with its mesmerising creatures.
From the beauty and serenity of the soaring Atlas Mountains to the Cape of Good Hope, from the brooding jungles of the Congo to the raging Atlantic Ocean, we have experience unexplored rainforests, never-before-filmed mountain ranges and even snow-covered desert.
As the dynamic tension between wilderness and wildlife plays out, the drama, beauty and power of this majestic land has been revealed: prehistoric-looking shoebills fight for ascendancy, plucky lizards playfully hunt for food on the backs of lions and giraffes engage in ferocious battles.
In the series finale, Africa’s future is focused on, with an exploration of the Sahara Desert included.
