Fantastic photography! Do not care for the narrator, very boring voice!

Amazing images from the BBC team, once again. Most memorable part for me was the fight between two male giraffes, priceless.
Each episode includes a short "behind the scenes" documentary at the end.

Who knew that David Attenborough could best himself? Previously, unvisited (by camera crews) areas of Africa were visited over four years, and endless hours of patiently waiting on-site resulted in unique, and absolutely fantastic photography/videos. Sir David Attenborough is five stars!

BBC does it again --- even more spectacularly. Beautifully filmed and narrated. We are gracefully and dramatically given unique glimpses into rare or never before filmed/known aspects of creatures and mother nature in Africa. This film makes one feel the wonder of our planet and appreciate it even more. A must see!!

Who knew giraffes had another side and monkeys so beautifully well masked and lizards so brave. Wonderful series of animal life. Well done.

Outstanding new documentary series from David Attenborough focusing on Africa. Film crews give us some stunning cinematography along the way, while Attenborough narrates the series, a knowledgeable and likeable voice. Three standout sequences in the series: a place where the jungle meets the ocean and animals large and small congregate to take in the surf, a battle between giraffes, and the sheer audacity of lizards in trying to have a meal of flies without disturbing sleeping lions.
