Around 150 wild horses—the likely descendants of horses abandoned by German and South African armies at the end of the First World War—live in the Sperrgebiet, 26,000 square kilometres of spectacular desert, grassland and rock land along Namibia’s west coast. This ‘Forbidden Zone’ of ghost towns was closed in 1908 to safeguard the diamonds that could literally be picked up in the sand, and later reopened in 2008 as a national park. Without water the horses should have died in the desert, but an artesian well from colonial times saved them. Now they trek through stunning landscapes between the well and the sparse grazing grounds, shadowed by spotted hyenas scanning for vulnerable foals or weaker older horses. The film follows the horses through one of the harshest years on record. And through it all, the horses show remarkable solidarity. In a heart-rending scene, a mare and stallion abandon—and then return to—their exhausted foal. In the meanwhile, an old horse enjoys a last dust bath with its fellows but can barely struggle to its feet to move on. At last, the rains bring scenes of pure joy as magnificent stallions and mares frolic and splash in their temporary mud baths.

The site of a large geological deposit of mineral wealth, South Africa has prospered from a history of mining, with the lion's share of riches going to white workers and owners. South Africa's system of apartheid has since been abolished, and blacks are claiming more of the skilled jobs in the gold mines. In the last episode of the National Geographic series, two women attempt to reach their goals of better job opportunities. Africa, Pt. 8: Southern Africa looks at Xoliswa Vanda and Putswa Tekane as they try to work in an industry that may be on the decline.

For the people who have settled near the eight Great Lakes of Africa, agriculture and fishing can provide a means of support. In Africa, Pt. 6: Great Lakes, National Geographic crews visit two families, whose destinies are bound up in their crops and the harvest from Lake Victoria. Overfishing is only one of the problems confronted by the Tinkewimeru family, who have sold fish from the lake for years. Pollution and other factors may force them to find other work. The Ngwatimas might lose a large portion of their crops to drought conditions, an ever-present danger in Africa.

The Congo Basin is one of the most efficient ecosystems on earth. It supports a great diversity of wildlife, but its rainforest, a vast green blanket covering an area the size of Mexico, rests on sand-derived soils and is extremely fragile. It seems impossible that anybody can live here, but hidden by trees, are the forest homes of more than thirty thousand Baka people. The Baka believe they were thrown out of heaven for being too noisy. Their rich and complex music, language and laughter echo amidst the sounds of birds, insects and small primates. But now another, more terrifying sound has entered the forest: the shrill scream of a logger's giant saw.

In the heart of southern Africa stands the remains of a once mighty city, Great Zimbabwe. For hundreds of years a mysterious civilization reigned supreme here on the Zimbabwe plateau. Then suddenly, in the 16th century, it crumbled, leaving behind only a riddle: Who had built these massive walls? Obsessed with legends of a lost white civilization, a German explorer stumbled upon the ruins. Was this the legendary city of Sheba, he thought, whose queen captured the heart of King Solomon? Fifty years later, an archaeologist in her quest for the truth unearthed an even more remarkable past. Had Great Zimbabwe been the center of a powerful black culture, one of the greatest cities of its time? This idea sparked furious debate and was responsible for overturning centuries of bias about Africans and their history.

The Sahara, largest desert in the world, is home to the Tuaregs, the Moors, Arabs, and the Tubu. Throughout history, camel caravans have carried goods on trans-Saharan journeys, despite the forbidding climate conditions. Ivory, gold, and salt have been the primary cargoes, and in modern times, the trade goes on.
The program is an account of the first salt caravan of Adam Ilius, a nine-year-old boy, who makes the difficult trip to Bilma in Niger. While the modern world is approaching, some age-old practices of the desert continue.
