I've enjoyed three safaris myself. Of course, a theater will never give you the actual experience of the Serengeti and film can never replace vision, but the images here are abundant with high quality animal life and rich with animal emotion.

Hollywood Report Card

While Africa is completely absorbing, it's best viewed as a primer to the subject matter. With its 40-minute run time, viewers are able to grasp only a surface understanding of the material.

The film is ... an impossibly lucky safari delivered with a soft touch of science and philosophy.

Audience Reviews for Africa: The Serengeti

Beautiful imagery and of James Earl Jones is a great narrator (of course), but I thought they overused the fish eye lens. I thought it was distracting from the natural beauty of the landscape.

It shows the hardship and loss of nature without depressing you. The music was powerful and emotional. James Earl Jones' voice is calming as well as commanding. I like it.

At barely 40 minutes long, with commercials, it feels like an episode of Nature on PBS, or something similar on National Geographic. It is excellent in its cinematography and narration, if it was twice, or even three times as long it would be twice, or even three times as better!
