“Witness birth, death and survival in this stunning encounter with the wildlife of Namibia’s Etosha National Park”

Migrating herds of elephant, wildebeest, and zebra, predators like lions and cheetahs, all must endure the torrid months of heat before the rains come in south-western Africa.

Filmed in Namibia’s Etosha National Park during a 2-year span, this is one of the most acclaimed films of its kind. See extraordinary close-ups of animal behaviour: in slow-motion a cheetah chase becomes a sublime swim through the air, a wildebeest mother successfully defends her calf from attack, lion cubs catch and play with bullfrogs and a dove succumbs to a surprise attack by turtles.

This film has become one of the few truly ‘classic’ African wildlife documentaries. Expertly narrated by Alexander Scourby, its goal is to show all facets of animal life, and scenes of violent encounters between species are balanced with touching scenes of young animals at play.

This documentary was the first ever winner of the Wildscreen Golden Panda Award.

After its original release, it was broadcast as ‘African Wildlife’.

Narrated by Alexander Scourby.
Produced by David & Carol Hughes for National Geographic Society (1980)              

Please note: This is an older production, produced before modern, high-definition equipment was available - its quality is comparable to that of VHS video, not today’s DVD quality. Regardless of this, it remains an outstanding wildlife film in its own right, beloved by many viewers who will remember it from TV during the 1980s and 90s.
