Embark upon this fascinating safari Into Africa where you will not only discover, but get the chance to better understand the marvels of this beautiful continent. Join host Robert Vaughn and his very special guests; Patrick Macnee, Jameson Parker, Paul Sorvino, Alan Thicke, and Robert Duvall as they experience Africa.
We start off in the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve with Paul Sorvino tracking the white rhino. The white rhino is the largest living species of rhinoceros. It has two subspecies, the southern white rhinoceros and the northern white rhinoceros. While the northern white rhinoceros is extremely rare with only three confirmed still living in captivity in 2015, the southern white rhinoceros is the most abundant subspecies of rhino in the world today estimated at 20,000.
Next stop on our journey is the Timbavati Private Reserve where we join Robert Duvall on a safari photo shoot. Duvall gets quite the scare as a large elephant begins to charge at the vehicle.
Headed back to the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve, Sorvino is brought only 15 feet away from a pack of lions. While the thrill is exciting, he’s warned the wrong move could potentially threaten these large majestic animals.
In Botswana, special guest, Alan Thicke shows us his favorite African wildlife, the dung beetle. The dung beetle can roll balls of dung up to 10 times their weight. They are also very paternal as they do this to feed their young.
Come along with Jameson Parker as he gets a tour of the Hoedspruit Cheetah Project, here you will get a rare look at the African wild dog.
Up next, join Patrick Macnee in Shakaland. Shakaland Zulu Cultural village comprises of 55 beehive huts, tribal dancing, and cultural tours. It’s said to be “the greatest Zulu experience in Africa”.
We end with Durban, the country’s busiest port and the most popular beach resort.
