I resent having to do AMAZON's job, but people should know what is included in the contents of this collection. These are National Geographic films shown on Television from the 1970s through the 1990s about African wildlife at that time. The African Wildlife Collection contains twelve National Geographic films, two on each DVD disc, on a total of six DVD discs.

Beauty and the Beasts: A Leopard's Story (*****)
This excellent 1995 nature film is about a leopard in the Mala Mala game reserve, within South Africa's Kruger National Park.
The film shows the leopard's activities, as well as wart hogs (prey), lions and hyenas (competitors), and at the end it even shows the leopard catching an impala leaping thru the air.

Wings over the Serengeti (***)
This 1995 nature film is about the "clean-up crew" that disposes of the animal (remains) waste from the plains of the Serengeti, Tanzania. The focus is on the White-backed (Griffon) Vulture, but also shows the other vultures (like the Egyptian) as well as the Dung Beetle and the services they all perform to keep the natural world clean.

Survivors of the Skeleton Coast (***)
This 1984 nature film by Des & Jen Bartlett was made on the south-west coast of Namibia, which is a desert on the western sea coast of southern Africa. The focus of this great film is on the existance of the desert Elephants, as well as the desert Lions (which were all eventually killed by farmers).

Elephants (*)
This 1977 film is an overview of Elephants in captivity (both in zoos and domesticated) as well as in the wild.

Wildlife Warriors ( )
This film by Beverly and Derek Joubert is about Botswana's National Park Services attempt to combat poachers.

I grew up with the old National Geographic specials on VHS and I was starting to get a little worried that they would never be re-released. Fortunately, my faith was rewarded with this excellent collection.

Most of these specials are programs that have never been released on DVD before and the more contemporary programs that you get with them are also of a very high quality. It is also VERY reasonably priced for what you get in return!

Some of the programs that can be found in this collection are:

Gorilla, a spectacular look at the great ape in the wild and in captivity.

The Rhino War, a thrilling account of the real life heroes trying to keep the black rhino around!

Zebras: Patterns in the Grass, a wonderful and enlightening documentary about this famous animal.

African Wildlife, easily my favorite documentary in the entire collection. This film is broad in scope and reaches a level of beauty and wonder I have only ever seen in one other documentary: Planet Earth

The films I have just listed are only a small portion of what you are given, I have left out at least SIX other documentaries included in this set!

This collection contains some of the best old National Geographic videos transferred on DVD. I collect all the wildlife NG video's and I am so glad that with "Worlds Last Great Places" and "Africa's Wildlife Collection" they have put together 2 of the best box sets you will find. If you are an avid wildlife documentary lover this is a great set 6 DVD's with 2 programs on each you can't beat that. One of my all time favorites is finally on DVD "Beauty and The Beast:A leopards Story","Lions Of Darkness","African Wildlife", and "Rhino Wars" are some more greats.

On one hand, these DVDs present a host of interesting facts and amazing footage all about African wildlife. However, it is completely misleading that the copyright date on this DVD set is 2007. Most of the parts we've seen so far were produced in the early 80s, making the facts almost 30 years old and thus quite outdated. Watching the gorillas, it is claimed that Dian Fossey is alive and well and teaching in the US, when she was brutally murdered in 1985. As I said, the collection is good, but be aware that much has changed in the last 30 years...
