Video: Rwanda Unfiltered

For me, Africa is the epitome of a wild place. The continent features vast expanses of untamed wilderness, massive amounts of wildlife and some of the most beautiful landscapes you'll find anywhere. My friends and family will tell you that I need little excuse to go back to Africa. It is a place that definitely sticks with you when go.

Maybe that's why I found this video to be so engrossing. It was shot in Rwanda by Mammoth Media, who spent two weeks there capturing the very essence of the place. Their work was meant to be used by the country's tourism department to promote everything they have to offer. But Mammoth released this version on the web so we can get Rwanda in its pure, unfiltered state with all of its flaws and natural beauty intact. I think it just makes the place even more appealing.

Thanks to my friends at Gadling for sharing this amazing short film.

Awesome video.

I doubt you'll have it over the pond yet but the new BBC/David Attenborough series 'Africa' is absolutely incredible - be sure to look out for it!

It's even better than a lot of the BBC Natural History Unit's previous work (Frozen Planet, Life etc) and I'm sure you'll know how good all that has been! I'm not sure any natural history/nature documentaries even begin to compare to their work in terms of quality and accuracy (I'm biased being a Brit I'm sure!).

Tom, you have every right to be biased. The BBC shows are amazing and I'm already looking forward to Africa. I caught the trailer for it awhile back and thought it looked amazing. Can't wait to see it!

Hello Everyone,
I had a privilege to coordinate and guide mammoth media filming in Rwanda, mammoth is really professional, Mammoth had 11 days on a tour, that’s a standard tour that can help you learn and understand Rwanda. Rwanda is great we have a long history, from the colonial time to today we went through a lot but, here is what everyone says after such a tour; “After all, Rwanda has a successful story to tell” please visit Rwanda, if you need a professional help please call this number +250788964466.
