That’s the opening line to every episode of the six-part Serengeti series which premiered on the Discovery Channel on Sunday and is narrated by our very own Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. The series which was created by Simon Fuller and directed by John Downer follows a cast of animals in the Serengeti for a year and explores their relationships with each other as they survive the wild.

Several of the animals followed in the park include Kali the lioness, Bakari the baboon and Zalika the hyena. Through cutting edge camera work technology and the honey tones of Lupita’s voice, viewers will get to experience the Serengeti from the animals’ perspective and learn their stories.

With this ambitious project, Lupita Nyong’o becomes one of the few female narrators of nature documentaries, something she has expressed interest in doing more of. Notable examples of nature documentary narrators include Sir David Attenborough, Morgan Freeman and James Earl Jones.

Serengeti, which means ‘endless plains’ is a vast ecosystem that spans from North Tanzania all the way to Southwestern Kenya. The documentary was filmed at the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.

You can catch an episode of Serengeti on Discovery Channel every Sunday on DSTV and GoTV.
