Wildest Africa

Narrated By: Colin Salmon
Running Time:
676 Minutes

Wildest Africa, the landmark series exploring the habitats, weather, nature and dangers of Africa is now available. Spanning over 13 episodes running for nearly an hour each, audiences are presented with a beautiful and insightful look into how all species (including humans) survive in the harsh and often dangerous landscapes of the ginormous continent. While it is certainly captivating and amazing to watch, itís certainly nothing you havenít seen before. 

The cinematography on display in this series is nothing short of what you would expect in as series such as this; itís simply beautiful. Vast landscapes are perfectly captured, from the barren like conditions of the Sahara Desert to the luscious Okavango Delta. It has always amazed me how close they can get to the native wildlife without disturbing its daily routine. The high quality of the cameras teamed with the sheer skill of the crew presents you with engrossing footage of lions chasing their prey, baboons navigating near impossible heights by trees and huge herds of elephants migrating across the landscape. Itís truly impressive to see in motion, and combined with a perfectly accompanying tribal drum soundtrack throughout itís the closest thing to actually being there. 

Veteran British actor and voice-over artist Colin Salmon narrates the entirety of the series, with his voice providing emotion where itís needed in particular scenes. While he doesnít provide as much of an insight into why particular animals act the way they do (such as the likes of Sir David Attenborough) his variety in tone throughout the series helps build up the tension in some scenes such as the before mentioned lion chasing its prey. 

Wildest Africa is a fantastic series, however it doesnít really bring anything new to the table. If you are familiar with other mainstream documentary series such as Planet Earth and the similarly titled Wild Africa, you are probably all too familiar with the things on offer here, which may not leave many surprises for you in terms of the showís content. Nonetheless, Wildest Africa is truly an impressive documentary series, and among the best of the past few years. 

No Special Features were included on the DVDs.
