African Secrets Secrets of the Wilderness
Filmed around Hippo Pools Wilderness camp, this episode reveals some of the creatures crawling on the earth’s surface, or flying above it- all of them hitherto taken for granted. The programme captures creatures such as the Scarlett-chested Sunbird, the Forktailed Drongo, the Firefinch, the Golden-breasted Bunting, the Golden-tailed Woodpecker, the Leguaan, the Agama, the Klipspringer and the rock Dassie, among others. These are rare species, especially to the camera lenses. Their appearance on the screen is much more than amusing. If one is not amused by the lifestyles of these creatures, one is sure to be fascinated by the thrilling leguaan fight or the leguaan’s odd but intelligent fishing habits.
