The most enjoyable documentary ever!
25 January 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I've seen more than my fair share of documentaries, and even some less known nature documentaries. They all have something special about them, but not one goes to such great lengths to not only show us the beauty of nature (Africa), but also animals being simply - funny to no end. The research and work that went into making of this film, as well as the effort that it must've taken to put it all together in such a fun package is well worthy of any award. This film is for all fun loving nature and animal lovers out there. If you have kids, or are a big kid yourself, even better. Sit back and enjoy, you will not be disappointed (only pleasantly surprised). Even though this gem falls under a category "documentary" it feels like a feature film due to its fun nature where animals are like actors telling us their stories. So, do not disregard it due to its label - documentaries can be dry and underwhelming, but this one is exact opposite.
