Surviving Paradise – the latest Netflix wildlife documentary

A film by Renée Godfrey – Narrated by Regé-Jean Page – filmed in the Okavango Delta

Surviving Paradise explores the Okavango Delta, a vast oasis and known as the wildllife richest wetland system on earth. It is home to one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of wildlife. This film explores the blueprints for building the perfect world and maintaining it despite the extremes of drought, famine, and flood. It has premiered on Netflix on the 4th of March 2022 and has received amazing reviews.

Into The Okavango

The Okavango River Basin provides a vital source of water to about 1 million people, the world’s largest population of African elephants and significant populations of lions, cheetahs and hundreds of species of birds. However, this once unspoiled oasis is now under siege due to increasing pressure from human activity. From National Geographic Documentary Films, Into the Okavango chronicles a team of modern-day explorers on their first epic four-month, 1,500-mile expedition across three countries to save the river system that feeds the Okavango Delta, one of our planet’s last wetland wildernesses.

Relentless Enemies

A film by Dereck and Beverly Joubert – narrated by Jeremy Irons – filmed in the Duba Plains concession

The rich surroundings and unique environment of the Okavango River Delta have morphed the Tsaro lions into huge, thick-necked beasts. Far more aggressive and dangerous than their cousins on the Serengeti, these lions defy what we thought we knew about big cats. Normally lazy males attack viciously as lionesses wade through water for a better angle on their prey. But the buffalo are no sitting ducks. As prisoners on an island only five years old, they’ve developed their own strategies for survival. Relentless Enemies takes you deep into the action as a wall of angry buffalo thwarts a lion attack.
