AFRICAN SAFARI 3D, Ben Stassen
Belgium / 2013 / 110 min / DCP / English
Take the ride of a lifetime and go on a thrilling safari in exclusive immersive 3D, travelling across Africa from Namibia to the Kilimanjaro.
nWave Pictures invites you on a new and exciting adventure in Africa. Join zoologist Liesl Eichenberger and wildlife filmmaker Tim Liversedge as they explore the Okavango Delta, one of the most spectacular wildlife reserves on earth.
The Okavango River originates in the highlands of Angola, but never reaches the sea. Instead, it empties into the Kalahari Desert, irrigating 20,000 square-km of this desolate region.
This thrilling expedition will bring you face-to-face with the most majestic wild animals inhabiting this corner of paradise. You feel as you are in the seat of the open air Range Rover as it treks across the plains.
You cannot get any closer than this.
