The wildlife wonders of David Attenborough’s Africa

As Britain prepares to sit down and watch the penultimate episode of Sir David Attenborough’s outstanding Africa series this week, we thought we would take a look at some of the amazing discoveries Attenbourgh's newest show has treated us to this year. From surprisingly social rhinos, to turtle hatchlings trying to find their way home, here are some of the best bits of the series so far to inspire your next holiday to Africa!

Kalahari



The first episode in the six part series brought us to Kalahari. In the heart of the Kalahari Desert in the south-west corner of Africa, we were shown charming  meerkats being outsmarted by a wily bird, a welcome change from the meerkats Britain is used to seeing that are at permanent war with a certain price comparison site! The most noteworthy part of Attenborough’s journey in Kalahari though, was the discovery of the secret social habits of Rhinos, an animal previously thought to be completely solitary.

Week two took viewers to Savannah, the part of Africa that was used as the background and inspiration for Disney’s classic film, The Lion King. Here we were treated to an insight into the life of a tiny and lovable lizard in search of his next meal.

Congo

The next instalment ventured into the deep rainforests of the Congo, one of the most competitive habitats in the world. The show opened with a ravenous chimpanzee demonstrating his complex way of accessing honey to satisfy his hunger and later showed us a pair of adorable picathartes taking on the challenging task of building a new home.

Last week’s episode took us to an area of southern Africa that was discovered only six years ago. The fourth episode of the series played on our heartstrings as we were shown hundreds of baby turtles struggling to find their way to the ocean after hatching from their eggs on the beach.

With two episodes left in the phenomenal series it is impossible to predict what other natural wonders will be hitting our TV screens, but one thing is certain, it is not to be missed!
