About the movie

Where water brings nature to life.

Come with us on a spectacular 3D ride across, over, and through the magical realms of the most dramatic continent on earth: Africa.

Our guide through this enchanted kingdom is the sorcerer itself – water. Water crafts Wild Africa, conjuring up life wherever it journeys… travelling above the plains on seasonal winds, cascading along raging rivers or sheltering coral cities. Audiences will be plunged into fantastic places and meet amazing creatures.

On the journey through the magical realms of Africa, we’ll discover the fascinating secrets of this enchanted kingdom. How spectacular volcanic lakes help turn thousands of flamingos pink, why the heat beating down on waterless dunes in the Namib Desert forces a lizard to dance; and why it snows on the equator.

It’s an adventure where you will truly believe the real world is more extraordinary and awe-inspiring than any fiction.

Winner of the 2016 Audience Prize at the Academica Film Olomouc festival in the Czech Republic.
