Come with us on a spectacular 3D ride across, over, and through the magical realms of the most dramatic continent on Earth: Africa. Our guide through this enchanted kingdom is—water. Water crafts wild Africa, conjuring up life wherever it journeys…travelling above the plains on seasonal winds, cascading along raging rivers, or sheltering coral cities. Audiences will be plunged into fantastic places and meet amazing creatures. On the journey through the magical realms of Africa, we’ll discover the fascinating secrets of this enchanted kingdom. How spectacular thermal geysers help turn thousands of flamingos pink, and create the perfect conditions for them to breed; how elephants navigate scorched plains to find hidden water; and why it snows on the equator. It’s an adventure where you will truly believe the real world is more extraordinary and awe-inspiring than any fiction.

Length: 20:00 and 40:00
