If you’re like me, you have a long list of the places in the world you want to visit in your lifetime. I’ve been fortunate enough to check off a good number, including South Africa (meet the young leopard I met on Safari below), but the rest of the African continent is still on my list.

I could go on and on about the filmmaking firsts and amazing production facts from the series, but better to let you explore them yourself. In the clip below from tonight’s episode, Kalahari, a group of endangered black rhinos, who are thought to be mostly solitary, gather at a watering hole. Future episodes (all Tuesday at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel) take us to the savannah, the Congo, the cape and the Sahara desert.
