Africa: In this episode, our presenters share memories of their wild adventures across Africa.

Gordon Buchanan reminisces about his career beginnings in Africa, when he was only seventeen. Camerawoman Sue Gibson remembers the time she spent filming a baby elephant called Safina. Steve Backshall shares a story about one of his most terrifying encounters: diving with Nile crocodiles in the Okavango delta of Botswana.

In a very personal story, wildlife cameraman Vianet Djenguet looks back on his time filming in his beloved homeland of Congo. Chris Packham remembers his adventures in Kenya, when he came nose-to-tusk with a group of rhino on the savannah. And finally, Liz Bonnin remembers the time she tracked zebra as they embarked on Africa's longest land migration.
