Wild Africa is a British nature documentary series created and produced by the BBC, which explores the natural history of the African continent. The series comprises six episodes. Each concentrates on a particular environment.
The film takes audiences on a spectacular journey across, over, and through the magical realms of the wildest continent on earth. Water, the interconnecting force of this enchanted kingdom, serves as a guide, shaping Wild Africa and conjuring up life wherever it journeys… travelling above the plains on seasonal winds, cascading along raging rivers or sheltering coral cities.
On the journey through the magical realms of Africa, audiences will be plunged into fantastic places and meet amazing creatures, discovering the fascinating secrets of this incredible world. For example, how spectacular volcanic lakes help turn thousands of flamingos pink, why the heat beating down on waterless dunes in the Namib Desert forces a lizard to dance, and why it snows on the equator. It is an adventure where you will truly believe the real world is more extraordinary and awe-inspiring than any fiction.
Fly from the highest snow covered mountains in Kenya, along great rivers, into steamy rainforests and wide-open savannahs while discovering the striking contrast of stunning deserts beside wild oceans and diving into the sunlit abundance of the coral reefs. In a final epic giant screen experience the movie chases the great rains of the African summer storms that annually bring life to this magnificent continent.
One of the most ambitious 3D nature films ever to grace the giant screen, Wild Africa fuses Hollywood techniques with the best in nature filmmaking and storytelling. Cutting edge 3D technology transports audiences from the movie theatre into the heart of Africa to meet its unforgettable wildlife. You'll feel as if you are on your own spectacular safari - experiencing at first hand the wonderful creatures in the glorious landscapes of Wild Africa.
