Never before has there been such an insightful and timely wildlife series.
The Okavango River (unlike most rivers) never reaches the sea. Instead it spills out over the sands of the Kalahari basin, creating the Okavango Delta in Botswana. This vast southern African oasis is one of the most remote and untouched wilderness areas on the planet, and one of the richest wildlife havens in the world. The sheer number of free ranging animals in the Delta in unmatched. This region is home to over one hundred species of mammals and their population densities are greater here than almost anywhere else in Africa. And the diversity of the creatures in the Delta is staggering. From the highly social and intelligent primates to the most ferocious of predators.
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 insiderís look into the lives and behaviors of animals in the untamed reaches of the planet.
