Never before has there been such an insightful and timely wildlife series.
John Ross pays tribute to the many people involved in studying and saving the populations of white rhino, moose, elephant, and hippo. The white rhino, ONE of the world’s many endangered animals, has made a tremendous comeback. The Asian or Indian elephant once roamed Asia in huge numbers. A hundred years ago there were more than 70,000 wild elephants in Thailand. Today that number is down to less than 2000. In the Okavango Delta hippos inhabit the waterways in high densities and the enormous animals are known to ferociously defend their territory. In South Africa, the white rhino is making a comeback after nearly being wiped out across the continent.
The cameras of Safari tell a compelling story, never shying away from showing the whole picture. From the endearing and playful, to the unexpected and deadly;Safari provides an unflinching portrait of animals in the wild with emphasis on endangered species.
Safari is hosted by naturalist John Ross, who devoted his life to exploring the natural world and documenting its secret treasures. As a wildlife expert, he provides a unique insider’s look into the lives and behaviors of animals in the untamed reaches of the planet.
