  • The 44th US President Barrack Obama has honoured his motherland, Kenya, in an upcoming five-part documentary about wildlife.

    Set to hit the screens on April 13, 2022, the TV series titled “Our Great National Parks,” chronicles the wildlife and landscapes in natural areas around the world.

    Among those mentioned is Kenya's Tsavo National Park which is described as the theatre of the wild by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS).

    With his baritone voice, Obama serves as the show's host and narrator of the docuseries produced by Higher Ground Productions, a company founded by the former President and his wife Michelle Obama.

    “This is a journey through the natural wonders of our shared birthright,” he describes the documentary as per its trailer.

    Other parks featured include Monterey Bay, California, the rainforests of Gunung Leuser National Park in Indonesia and the Chilean Patagonia among others.

    Tsavo is known for its rich wildlife with Elephants being the most noticeable.

    "The sight of dust-red elephant wallowing, rolling and spraying each other with the midnight blue waters of palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most evocative images in Africa.

    "This, along with the 300 kilomtere long Yatta Plateau, the longest lava flow in the world, make for an adventure unlike any other in the Tsavo East," reads a description of the park on KWS website.

    The park forms the largest protected area in Kenya and is home to most of the largest mammals on the planet, vast herds of dust –red elephant, Rhino and buffalo.

    Other wild animals found in the Park are big cats such as lions and leopards, pods of hippo, crocodiles, waterbucks, lesser Kudu, gerenuk as well as 500 species of birds.

    Higher Ground Productions was founded by the Obamas in 2018 with the aim of telling great stories. So far, it has released award-winning content such as Crip Camp, Becoming and American Factory which won an Oscar award.
