Animal Planet to air ‘Wild Instinct’ every Friday at 10 pm from 18 Dec
MUMBAI: For the last 15 years, Oliver Houalet, the Cheetah Man, has been living in Namibia with the largest big cats in Africa.
Olivier moved to Namibia when he was 18. A self-trained expert, he has spent years observing animal behaviour. Venturing into their enclosures, he has befriended the animals, rescuing them from poachers and releasing them into the wild.
In Animal Planet’s new series, ‘Wild Instinct’, he is in search of the last remaining animals that live in total freedom. To reach them, he is ready to penetrate the most remote corners of the globe and enter an environment where nature is often unpredictable.
Far from nature reserves and animal parks run by humans, Olivier will discover our planet’s last wild paradises.
Premiering on 18 December, the show will air every Friday at 10 pm on Animal Planet.
He will lead viewers deep into these ultimate paradises in an attempt to live out a dream: finding the last desert lions in Namibia, witnessing the great elephants gathering in Chobe in Botswana, attending the world’s largest mammal meeting in Kasanka in Zambia.
He will be seen finding the last wild paradises while visiting the remote corners of Namibia, experiencing the free wild animals and a number of unusual species of plants and animals found in the Namib Desert. Although the desert is largely unpopulated, the animals found there have adapted to the specific climate of the area. He will try to understand the intriguing method of how the bushmen communicate through the signs of animals, hunt with the milky poison on their arrows and protect themselves from being a prey to these endangered creatures.
He will also visit a prehistoric land called Dead Vleior ‘dead marsh’, which is one of the driest environments on the earth.
