Soundscape - The Serengeti March

Adjoa Andoh narrates an evocative series following the migration of a wildebeest across East Africa.

Kimbea is still a young adult, but she is ready for what lies ahead.

Teling a dramatic story of survival, as more than one and half million animals pursue the rains in an endless search for food and water over almost 2000 miles.

At 4 years old, Kimbea (a Swahili name meaning Run) is still a young adult, but this is her fifth annual migration and she is prepared for what lies ahead.

She must avoid lions, cheetahs and hyenas, survive a treacherous river crossing; escape grass fires on the parched plains, protect her new-born calf from predation, and survive the threats of starvation and dehydration during the long months of migration.

The backdrop to the series is the soundscape: a journey in sound, from the haunting cries of hyena on the open savannah to the loud, rude laughter of wallowing hippos in Lake Victoria; from the blood-bath of crocodile-infested rivers to the terrifying crackle of flames on the dry plains, and throughout, the Africa rhythm of over a million hooves, the grunts of wildebeest and the brays and snorts of zebra.
