Not what I expected

"Just wanted to agree with the other reviewer about the overall quality of this DVD. The video looks like it was pulled off of an old VHS tape. Lots of grain and shimmering.Sound was OK I guess, but wasn't what one would expect off a newly released DVD, particulary when you know how much better it could have been if someone had wanted it to be. To sum it up, somewhere someone took the easy road in putting this DVD together as it is both disappointing in video and sound.Almost forgot, there are no extras on the disc."
You will be disappointed!

"First of all, the picture quality is very poor and grainy and the sound is weak. The photography is just plain and not very exciting. You can hear some music of Vangelis but be warned that no "Chariots of Fire" was included here. I prefer the music of Mr. Mambazo to that of Vangelis.I would recommend you to buy "True North" or "Africa: the serengeti" instead of this inferior DVD."

"This is a wonderful mood piece. To see action packed lion kills, you're better off going to National Geaographic. For a peaceful reminder of the feeling of traveling Africa, this is it. This is one of the few videos that recognizes that much of the magic of Africa lives in people and places, not only the wildlife. This is a visual sampling of all the wonder of the Dark Continent, without distracting narration."
