Zimbabwe has already made Lonely Planet’s “Best in Travel” list, and over the course of 2019, we expect the country to become a firm favourite on the safari circuit. Hosted by Sir David Attenborough, the BBC Dynasties series is also sure to pull in a few more Zimbabwe followers before the year is out, episode four, which is scheduled to air on BBC One on 02 December at 8pm, focusing on the Painted Wolf – Africa’s most endangered predator.
Compelling viewing for all ages, the natural history production hones in on one animal family each week and this coming Sunday, Attenborough will follow a pack of painted dogs along the banks of the Zambezi and explore the rivalry between Tait the matriarch and her daughter Blacktip. We’ve been told the intense filming compares with a Shakespearean drama, and with no filter on nature, we doubt you’ll be armchair bound for long.
