About Africa

The continent of Africa has been well documented on television before, but this stunning Sir David Attenborough series shows Africa in an intimate way which we’ve never seen it before.


This is a journey through five diverse regions of an amazing continent, taking us seamlessly from the wild terrain of extraordinary landscapes to amazing 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'll 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 is revealed: prehistoric-looking shoebills fight for ascendancy, plucky lizards playfully hunt for food on the backs of lions and giraffes engage in ferocious battles.

Each episode promises intimate, eye-to-eye encounters with extraordinary wildlife, ventures into genuinely unexplored places, capturing never-seen-before behaviour, even of the most familiar wildlife.
