    With an abundance of food growing around the waterhole, the herbivores have come to feast. Wildlife Cameraman Bob Poole closely observes the social dynamics within herds of giraffe and zebra. Love is in the air as the giraffes select their mates by sniffing out pheromones. Meanwhile, among the zebra, a male stallion must keep a close eye on the females or another male will move in.

    Insects Swarm and a Family Nests

    S1 E3 - 3m

    A variety of insect species – from hoverflies to leaf roller moths – explode in population at the waterhole. Lured by the steady food source, a pair of swallows moves into the adjacent hide to build a new nest from the surrounding mud. These migrating birds have traveled from the south of the African continent to breed in Tanzania. And our hidden cameras are there to capture this new family.
