Water, falling on a city.

The sound of nature all around us.

Listen to what the rain has to say.

Follow it, up to the clouds

that sweep across the turning Earth.

Far, far away...

...to find a land where

water shapes all life.

Where Nature still holds sway...

...Africa.

Realms of fire and ice...

...water and wind...

...heat and dust.

Worlds within worlds...

...where we can be

swept back in to Nature.

ENCHANTED KINGDOM

The rainforest...

The very heart of

this vast continent.

The wettest place in Africa.

What lies hidden beneath this dense

canopy of green?

The mysterious forest.

With so much sun and rain,

it grows relentlessly...

...and all around the

tangled forest is the noise...

...of numberless creatures.

More animals live here

than in any other realm.

But they're hard to find.

Hardly any light gets through,

and down here, on the forest floor...

...a leaderless army of blind

ants is on the move.

Driver ants.

A swarm,

five million strong.

You don't want to get in their way.

They eat everything in their path.

These tiny ants

can overcome creatures...

...thousands of times bigger than them.

It's war, animal devouring animal

in the darkness...

...while plants struggle desperately

with each other to reach the light.

Life here can be a constant struggle.

But it's only a short walk to paradise.

In a glade in the forest...

...a family rests in the sun.

Gorillas.

Some of our closest relatives.

Just like us, they live in families.

Mothers and children,

uncles and aunts.

The big silverback's in charge.

He keeps an eye on everyone.

For this family

the forest is really the garden of Eden.

All the food they need

is within easy reach.

They play, they talk...

...they quarrel, they learn...

...and make friends for life.

It's an idyllic place to grow up.

This is their world...

...they are really comfortable here.

And if anything threatens the peace...

...the silverback is ready

to protect his family.

Rain and sun made this rich forest.

But in the world beyond...

...another very different

realm is being forged...

...by a far more brutal clash

of the elements...

The Underworld.

The heart of a volcano...

...a fiery furnace...

...where rocks melt before your eyes

at temperatures of a thousand degrees.

You're seeing the Earth stretch open.

When our planet was first formed,

the whole world was like this.

Underground...

...the furnace stills burns,

making new land every day.

A world built from sulphur and salt,

belched from below.

Like an alien planet.

Acid pools and choking gases.

You can't even breathe the air.

Almost nothing can live here...

...but sometimes in the realm of

the volcanoes the fires breed life...

...out of poisoned water.

Lake Bogoria...

where boiling springs from the

underworld spill into a vast lake.

These waters are far

saltier than the sea...

...yet they draw life

from hundreds of miles away.

Flamingos...

...flame birds!

Occasionally, when the water

conditions are just right...

...the lake blooms with

masses of tiny algae.

A delicacy for the flamingos.

Their food contains

a red pigment...

...so, the more they sip

the pinker they glow...

...as if they're blushing.

Now the more they blush

the more desirable they become.

And when they're all

looking beautiful...

...they start to dance.

Inflamed by the waters of

this volcanic lake...

...they seek out partners

in the crowd.

Who will choose who in this

great gathering?

Somewhere out there is

the perfect match.

Out of the fires comes love...

...flamingos mate for life.

They are leaving the bubbling lake

to find a place to nest.

Soon they'll all be gone

the lake empty for another year.

But there are worlds in Africa so dry

they seem permanently empty.

The Namib desert.

It's been here for over

fifty million years.

One of the oldest, hottest,

driest places on Earth.

A great sea of sand...

...as restless as the ocean.

How can anything survive

in this wasteland?

But some do.

Millions of years

have taught them the necessary tricks.

A desert viper...

...sidewinding to get a

grip on the loose sand.

Food's hard to find,

so the viper hides...

...and waits for it come to him.

If you are going to hunt for a meal...

...it helps if you have eyes

in the back of your head.

Meet the Namaqua chameleon.

He's set his sights on an

armoured ground cricket.

His eyes are bigger than his stomach.

Better try again...

...for a lighter lunch.

Delicious!

In the middle of the day...

...the sand's so hot most

creatures can't stand it.

This little lizard's no bigger

than your little finger...

...and to stop his feet burning,

he's got to dance.

The shovel snouted lizard

can handle the heat...

...but all that dancing

works up an appetite.

He better be careful though.

Not everything here is

what it seems.

Tempting...

...but is it safe?

That was too close.

Time for a vanishing act.

With so little moisture in the dunes

there's only a sprinkling of life...

...and all of it small.

But if there is rain,

even a little...

...the water can change

the whole character of a place.

East of the Namib lies the realm

of the scorched plains.

Water occasionally

softens the earth...

...but now the land is bone dry.

It's a desperate time

for elephants.

They have to drink

more than any other animal on Earth.

To find enough water at
