In November, viewers had the pleasure of being taken on a journey through the wilderness of Southern Africa and the Indian and Atlantic Oceans discovering more about desert landscapes, lions interacting with elephants, how zebras and ostriches survive in the desert and the world of sharks. The documentaries showcased the tactics it takes to survive in the harsh deserts of Kalahari and Namib.
Sundays at 5:30 PM EAT on Kenya’s popular broadcasting channel Citizen TV are always anticipated by viewers across the country. The My Wild Africa series by WildlifeDirect and Wildlife Warriors TV brings high-quality wildlife documentaries produced in Africa. In October, Kenyans followed the lives of cheetahs in training to be ambassador animals of their species in the second season of cheetah diaries.
Every Sunday at 5:30 PM EAT on Citizen TV, Kenyans get to see stories and learn about African Wildlife through the My Wild Africa series. In September, Kenyans were introduced to the Western Lowland Gorillas and the gentle giants of Angola.
In July, three wildlife films have been screened showcasing African wildlife. Elephants, chameleons, hippos, leopards, birds, squirrels, Vervet monkeys, and even baboons, have graced the screens of Kenyans while they are at home.
In June, we screened the Kalahari Meerkats, an extraordinary series that follows the real-life story of a family of Meerkats known as the Gosa Gang, their passions, their loves and loses, and the secret to their survival in the harsh Kalahari Desert.
In May, WildlifeDirect announced a partnership with Citizen TV Kenya and launched a series of captivating stories from across Africa. My Wild Africa brings to Kenyans high-quality wildlife documentary series every week on Sunday at 5:30 pm EAT.
WildlifeDirect is thrilled to announce the launch of Season Two of the Wildlife Warriors Nature’s Treasures Photo Competition, which is open to nature lovers, amateur photographers, and children from East Africa.
Historically, most African wildlife films have been produced by Westerners for Western audiences. Paula Kahumbu, a Kenyan wildlife conservationist, is working to change that. She is the CEO of the nonprofit WildlifeDirect, which produces a documentary series featuring African storytellers such as herself telling the stories of African conservation heroes.
In April 2019, WildlifeDirect launched Wildlife Warriors, a TV series about Kenyan wildlife heroes at the front line, and the species that they are saving. The series has smashed all expectations after the results of a survey revealed that 51 percent of Kenyans had watched it this year.
