Another Side of Africa
Ashley Dowds shakes off civilization as he searches for the true historical engineers of the modern African natural environment. The acute ability of the continent’s creatures to persevere in extremely challenging conditions is attributed to historical events that have moulded the land, its people and wildlife and Ashley finds himself in a colourful voyage of discovering places that few know of and even fewer have visited. Ashley’s fierce independence helps him to gain access to isolated places where he also meets, sometimes, somewhat eccentric wildlife and environment specialists who have dedicated their lives to the wellbeing of secluded populations of valuable and scarce species. Another side carries a positive message of hope for Africa, its people and its magnificent wildlife.
