Moving from the coasts to the Jungles, this episode takes you into the heart of the continent's rainforests along the equatorial line of Africa. From the killifish that hatch, grow, and breed in the footprint of an elephant to a wide variety of beautifully plumed parrots, this show gives close encounters with clever primates and elephants, too.

Each episode covers a different ecosystem on the African continent. The episodes discuss the environmental changes that have given rise to each species. I prefer looking at individual ecosystems on one continent rather than the "flying around the world" approach of Planet Earth. With that said, this documentary is much older than Planet Earth (first produced in the late 1980s), so it simply doesn't have the HD quality viewers are used to. Regardless, there are still some amazing scenes, such as sea lions sneaking up on gannets in the water and hippos fighting each other with bloody jaws. Also, the enhanced mode is actually informative and not too intrusive, mentioning interesting facts about the animals. Definitely worth checking out.

Excellent presentation of some awesome wildlife and African scenery. It comes in two discs. Highly recommended for wildlife lovers or those who have been to Africa or who want to go to Africa (I have, and it is well worth going) or those who have not given it a thought. This will get you wanting to go.

This is a great widescreen (16 x 9) production, with good quality and exceptional wildlife sequences. I have seen no better recent surveys of the natural landscape of Africa, and the group of 6 programs plus extra features is an outstanding value. Think of a Planet Earth that focuses on the continent of Africa.

Most nature shows have a lot of educational content as well as beautiful landscapes/animals. This one was all that and more! I highly suggest it to any nature buff.

The production is not as engaging as any of Attenbourough's, but I have found the series appropriate to introduce Africa to my young children. There are no mating scenes. Some of the cinematography is quite beautiful.

This video reminded me more a music video than a documentary. There were lots of close up shots of animal mouths chewing, but not in time to the loud music. I stopped watching because the background music is overpowering.

I really enjoyed this series. My only reason for not giving 5 stars ,is that sometimes you could not hear the narrator cause the music played right over his voice. However, the pictures are worth a thousand words.
