The Joubert’s have put together an awesome 3 part African wildlife miniseries… again filmed in Botswana. It is aptly named “Okavango: River of Dreams!”
The promo blurb notes:
“Great Plains Conservation co-founders and wildlife filmmakers, Dereck & Beverly Joubert presents pure nature at its finest. The Okavango is one of Africa’s greatest rivers. It has its own moods and personality – sometimes it feeds, sometimes it starves, it is the character of its own story. Like other African rivers, the Okavango has its very own ghosts and demons, its moodiness lurking in its deep dark waters. The vast river system provides a beautiful stage for a drama of untouched nature, a portrait presenting all the richness and beauty of the Okavango. All the characters’ stories are told against the backdrop of their relationship with the water and their contribution to the river system. All the energetic, never-ending circle of life and death occurs in a truly natural paradise.”

“I first visited Africa in the late 1980s. I came face to face with a wild elephant, and fell in love with being on safari! I made it my goal to create an African travel company that was all about authentic wildlife experiences. Many years later we are one of the top African travel companies in the Americas – known for arranging custom safaris to East and Southern Africa; personal trips, no cookie cutter stuff.”
