The WildEarth Channel

Join our naturalists on a LIVE safari as they head off into the African bush. The families of leopards, lions and hyena you’ll see have been followed for many generations.

Come to know their histories as you follow them going about their daily lives – observed, but free and undisturbed.

Learn about the intricate ways everything in nature interacts – predator and prey, flora and fauna – to create a finely balanced environment. Pose your questions to our expert guides and get them answered live.

Follow the hustle and bustle of an African Penguin colony on the Cape Coast in South Africa.

Join our penguin experts as they walk among one of the few remaining colonies of these endangered animals and take you into the penguins’ daily lives and get to know some penguin characters from among the hundreds you’ll see every day.

Watch them throughout the year and seasons as they moult and mate, build nests and nurture their young – there is always something happening.

Relax with us as our freedivers explore the kelp forest around Cape Town and take you into these underwater jungles.

Experience the species richness and diversity of these forests of the sea. From the magnificent colours of sea stars and octopuses to shy sharks and playful seals.

Slow down and hold your breath with us, as we go below the surface.

Catch up on what you missed if you could not join us LIVE. Each programme is repeated within 24 hours.

The channel lineup is completed by our “Escape to nature” – made up of high-quality nature footage filmed throughout Africa.

Simply enjoy the sights and sounds of nature!
