The explosive force of these two-ton giants is captured on film as two big bulls do bloody battle at times being lifted out of the water by their rival. Lechwe swamp deer, zebra, giraffe, crocodiles and numerous fish all invade the wetlands.
Countless thousands of birds also arrive in the delta, to enjoy the seasonal bounty during this time of abundance. And in a phenomenon never before filmed in the Okavango, thousands of dragonflies appear seemingly from nowhere within minutes of the flood arrival, mating and laying eggs. As the flood finally reaches its peak, elephants and buffalo, near the end of their epic trek across the desert, face the final gauntlet of a hungry pride of lions.

Yet their survival depends entirely on one great event that runs up the forest rivers just once a year. As the rivers teem with spawning salmon the bears and wolves are drawn together and a deadly conflict unfolds.

For a caribou and her calf, it will be a struggle of life and death.

Mega pods of common dolphins, battalions of sharks and greedy Brydes whales feast on the sardines as gannets rain down from above. For African Penguins and bottlenose dolphins this movement of sardines is the defining moment of their lives.
