"For anyone lucky enough to have travelled around Africa-this DVD will be a magnificent companion and reminder of why this continent is so intriguing, magnificent and unforgettable. Life is never quite the same again. To anyone with a curiosity about Africa--this is without a doubt the most balanced, informative, captivating and engaging DVD about this vast and diverse continent you will ever see. Believe me, you will be richer for having watched it--so will your kids---and you will realise that Africa's future represents all of our futures and all of our pasts. Buy this and fall in love with Africa (again!). Not the dark continent at all - but the most diverse, beautiful and luminous place on the planet and captured on this fabulous DVD is all its glory and wonder."

"I am an African living in America, and was very impressed with this documentary. I watched it last night on the Travel Channel, and am here to buy my own copy today. Geldof's commentary is achingly honest, and the cinematography breathtaking. It made me smile, and broke my heart at the same time.
For those interested in Africa, this is a must-have."

"Make sure you watch it twice: first the program and second time with the Director's comments. It certainly helps if you get the book as well. After immersing into this Africa exprerice how can you not line up to help in any way you can?
