Back from filming wild Bonobos and forest streams

Back from filming wild Bonobos and forest streams

This journey for the series ‘The Congo River’ took us deep into the equatorial forests of DRC. My colleague Mirco Tribanek from Blue Planet Film and I were guests in the remote research camp of the Max Planck Institute. Despite a black mamba getting angry at me on the first day and many thick rain clouds, I was lucky to film some highly characteristic and special behaviour of this elusive close relative, the bonobo.
