Join explorer Richard Wiese as he journeys to South Africa, for incredible encounters with white rhinos and elephants. Richard joins a conservation team on foot and by helicopter as they implant tracking devices to help monitor rhinos and protect them against poachers. He's welcomed into a Zulu tribe and meets some enterprising women who started a community garden that feeds the tribe and supplies local safari lodges.

The tale of the turtle takes place on the beaches of South Africa's Rocktail Bay, on the edge of the Indian Ocean. Richard Wiese travels here to search for the extraordinary 300-pound loggerhead turtle, which swims thousands of miles each year to lay its eggs on the same beach where it was born. Richard joins a Tsonga tribesman to catch fish in unusual reed traps and visits a rural primary school to see how the next generation of South Africans is coming of age.

Join host Richard Wiese in Tanzania, a land renowned for its extraordinary wildlife and more than 100 indigenous tribes. In a remote village, Richard is welcomed into the Iraqw tribe to experience daily life. He explores the Serengeti to witness one of the most incredible events on the planet-the Great Wildebeest Migration. And deep in the bush, he visits the people of the Datoga tribe and joins their festive celebration honoring a village elder.

Join Richard Wiese as he journeys to Tanzania to climb the highest mountain on the African continent - Mount Kilimanjaro. With friends and family, Richard sets out on a seven-day climb to the summit at over 19,000 feet. He follows the same path he took with his father at age 11, more than 40 years ago. This is his 14th ascent up Kilimanjaro-only this time, Richard encounters the worst weather he's ever faced on the mountain.

Richard Wiese journeys to Tanzania to meet its people, rich cultures and amazing wildlife. He descends into the Ngoro Ngoro Crater and comes face-to-face with lions, elephants, and hippos. Richard then travels deep into the Serengeti bush for a rare encounter with a little-known Stone Age tribe called the Hadza. Only a few hundred Hadzabe remain today, living a remote and primitive existence. Richard joins the men on a hunt with only bows and arrows in their daily search for food.

Join Richard Wiese as he journeys to Turkey, a land where east meets west. Richard explores Istanbul's fabled Spice Market, and a traditional fortune-teller reveals his future through the grounds in his coffee cup. Explore Cappadocia, a region known for "fairy chimneys," some of the most striking geologic formations on earth. Join Richard as he takes to the skies aboard a hot air balloon for an aerial adventure of a lifetime and discovers why Turkish rugs are considered some of the best in the world.
