More About This episode

Journey to the Liuwa Plains, one of Africa's last wild places. This remote landscape is one of jarring extremes. For half the year, it's a dry, barren plain where only the toughest survive. Then, torrential rains bring relief, transforming the plains into a bountiful wetland paradise. Discover how creatures of all sizes--from colonies of termites to vast herds of wildebeest--have adapted to thrive in these two very different worlds.
