Journeys Inspired by BBC PLANET EARTH II

Journeys Inspired by BBC PLANET EARTH II

Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, you can experience many of the scenes that have unfolded on screen in real life with Dive and Africa Discovery. From marine iguanas in the Galapagos to great one-horned rhinos in India. To the elusive Show Leopard in Ladakh, India Himalaya’s. As well as the adorable lemurs of Madagascar!

We offer wonderful tours to see the wildlife in this selection of Planet Earth II.


Komodo Dragon; Komodo and Rinca Islands, Indonesia

Komodo dragonThe team worked across Rinca and Komodo Islands to capture this sequence. It’s a dangerous job for a cameraman, and up to six rangers worked with the team using just sticks as a deterrent, if the dragons got too close.

The Komodo dragon is the largest lizard on the planet growing up to three metres long and weighing in at over 70kg.

The Komodo Island population is around 2,000 individuals and they can be deadly to humans – there are reported cases of people being stalked and killed by dragons.

Marine Iguanas; Fernandina, Galapagos

Galapagos Islands
Working from a small yacht to access this uninhabited, remote island location, the team arrived on Fernandina and witnessed a hatchling sprint across the beach followed by what seemed a ‘medusas head’ of snakes pour from the rock.

Snow Leopards; Himalayas, Ladakh, India

Snow leopardThe Planet Earth II sequence is the first time that four snow leopards have ever been filmed together. With as few as 3,500 snow leopards remaining in the wild, they are incredibly elusive and hard to film.
