BBC Earth’s WILD AFRICA 3D is a spectacular journey across the wildest continent on earth. Students will fly along the Great Rift Valley following the twisting rivers to discover a family of elephants on their epic search for water.

Meet hungry crocodiles waiting at water holes for the annual wildebeest migration on the savannahs of the Serengeti, a family of mountain gorillas in the forests of Rwanda and thousands of flamingos performing a mating display in the volcanic Lake Bogoria.

From the highest mountains in Kenya, along great rivers, into steamy rainforests and across wide-open savannahs, you and your class will explore the striking contrast of stunning deserts beside wild oceans and the sunlit abundance of the coral reefs.

Water, the interconnecting force of this kingdom, serves as a guide, shaping wild Africa and conjuring up life wherever it journeys.

Please Note: The Museum & Science Center will be closed for maintenance, cleaning, and updates January 8 -12.

We will resume normal hours on Saturday (1/13). Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support!
