A new spectacular documentary film in 3D stereo on the Serengeti: land of endless spaces, classified UNESCO World Heritage Centre, stretching many hundred miles from Tanzania to the northern outline of Kenya conservation areas.

The Serengeti: a land of endless spaces, classified by UNESCO World Heritage Centre, stretches many hundred miles from Tanzania to the northern outline of Kenya conservation areas.

From the broad plains under the The Ngorongoro Crater highlands, over the central Serengeti thorn bush lands, as far as to the luxuriant pastures in the North, attracting yearly two millions gazelles and zebras, over about 25.000 square kilometers lands.

Serengeti is the measureness dramatic arena offering for centuries the same untarnishable, violent and pure show on life and death.

Serengeti, Massai Mara and Ngorongoro celebrate every year Earth's essential strength, the imponderable raw life pulse.

Wild and moving spectacle of Gnus, Zebras and Antilopes which traverse every year almost the entire plains in search of food, following the same migration paths through extreme droughts and rain plains. Aspiring, when the sun becomes a plague, to abundant and wet plains.

Tight on their trail: their predators and ancient foes: lion, leopard, cheetah and hyenas.

Nowhere on the planet does the struggle for life offer such poignant show and enthralling sights.
