Gorongosa Park Rebirth of Paradise

Experience the incredible and inspiring rebirth of an African wilderness through the eyes of an Emmy Award®-winning wildlife cameraman. American-born, African-raised Bob Poole embarks on an amazing adventure: spending two years living in the million-acre paradise of Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park, joining scientists and conservationists in the battle to re-wild this once-legendary nature preserve. Restoring the fabric of life in the park after a long civil war is one of the most ambitious wilderness restoration projects ever attempted.This is no ordinary filming assignment for Poole, as he combines his passion for conservation with his career filming the world's beautiful but vulnerable wild animals. He helps scientists dart and track the park's elusive lions, decodes the behavior of the park's angry elephants, wrestles and studies massive crocs, and helps truck in herds of animals to replace the ones that were lost during the war. In addition to stunning images of Africa's iconic wildlife, Poole shares firsthand one of the most exciting conservation stories happening in the world today.

This is one of the best wild life documentaries, Bob and his sister Joan make you feel as though you are sat right in the jeep with them. Takes your breath away. A riviting production right to the very end.

WOW!
Review by The R. on 07/17/20 review stating WOW!
Beautiful and heart-wretching animal (and some human) stories unfold across the six episodes as if you are reading a good book and always looking forward to the next chapter. The lion and elephant story lines in particular make Gorongosa suitable for binge watching like a cable mini-series! The audience steps into the shoes of the conservationists...riding along in their jeep and looking through their lenses. From this vantage, there is the allure of what nature has in store since we all have fallen in love with the animal characters. We can only observe and trust the big picture; bear witness and learn but not fully protect. The narrator Poole, his scientist sister, the parks vet and other human characters speak candidly from their hearts whether enjoying a triumph or taking an animal death, or other set back, in stride. Go Gorongosa Go!
