Finally, after five years in the making, SAFARI is now available. Covering over half a million miles, the crew of Safari faced extremes in climates from forty-below-zero to one-hundred-twenty degrees Fahrenheit. After withstanding a hurricane, escaping forest fires and being lost for days in a blinding snowstorm, the milestone series has set a new standard for wildlife documentaries.
From the frozen Arctic to Africa’s pristine Okavango Delta, the award-winning Safari brings you face to face with the most fascinating creatures on earth.
Never before has there been such an insightful and timely wildlife series. 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.
A message from John Ross: The word Safari means a journey and this has been a long wonderful one with some of the most exciting memories of my life. I remember once waiting behind a tiny cloth blind as a leopard killed a deer just in front of me. I stood only fifteen feet away from a family of endangered Asiatic Lions. I watched over one thousand elephants come to a pool in Botswana River over the course of a single day. I’ve seen the majority of the world’s remaining individuals of an endangered species fly by me in a Moroccan desert and the release of grey wolves in Yellowstone after seventy years of their absence. Once we rolled our cameras for ten hours waiting through a blinding rainstorm until finally a lioness in hiding exploded out and grabbed an antelope.
My goal in producing Safari is to take the viewer along a journey into the remote areas of the animal world to experience not only the animal’s life but also its struggle for existence. The purpose of Safari is to look for answers to the most important question of all; on this small fragile planet what needs to be done to protect the animals and their habitat so that they can live on in the wild. I firmly believe the answer lies in gaining a more complete understanding of animals in the wild. Every episode of Safari is dedicated to working toward this goal.
