World's Wildest Encounters

screenable online: 3 episodes

Legendary wildlife filmmaker Andreas Kieling sets out to capture on film the last exemplars of a variety of animals, which means closer-than-close experiences with some of the rarest, most dangerous and most endangered species in the world. Among his 'trophies' are the biggest crocodiles and largest wild sheep on earth, the proud Asian lion and deadly Komodo Dragon, the distinctive Canadian blue bear and a family of docile mountain gorillas living at an altitude of 4,000 meters in Rwanda.
