14 Episodes

Not since “Bone Collector” has a hunting show made people smile and laugh as they do while watching “This Is Africa.” It is a fun show to watch.

The dynamic team of brother and sister, Andrew and Michelle Buchanan, have a lifetime's worth of experience in African hunting. With a passion for wildlife and a fun-loving dynamic, born of a lifetime spent hunting and fishing together on the African Continent.

Watch how Michelle, Andy, and their award-winning post-production team tell the stories of their friends hunting and fishing across the Dark Continent, revealing the mysteries and secrets of Africa’s wildlife. Yesteryear’s shows will be replaced by knowledge of local people, cultures, and animals (big and small), in today’s challenging and quirky Africa.

Poaching, anti-poaching, community development, and how these are directly affected by and affiliated with hunting is an intricate part of this show. In a world filled with misinformation “This is Africa” portrays the unbiased truth about conservation through hunting. Watch how we dismantle a poacher’s camp, get a truck unstuck, and being surprised by a herd of elephants popping up in a surprising spot.

This is Africa is different. Michelle and Andy treat viewers to a refreshing style with their young and energetic hosting. Leaving behind the old formulaic, one-dimensional hunting show and introducing the next generation natural history series. Taking you straight into the African bush, with how-to, interviews, and tips.

Experience the African Continent like NEVER before.
