Niger 1: Exploring Niger

Niger 1: Exploring Niger

One of the poorest and hottest countries in the world, Niger is also one of the most fascinating countries in West Africa. Divided into three geographic regions, with the ever-spreading Sahara Desert as part of its northern section, this African republic of over 12 million is mostly known for its constant struggle to properly feed its people; however, despite these difficulties, Niger understands the economic benefits of tourism and welcomes the opportunity to partner with the world community. In this insightful program, producer Daniel Balluff enlists the aid of local guides, including Idi Oumarou and Hassan Taweye, and shows us that Niger is a perfect "off the beaten path" destination for adventurous travelers, complete with beautiful landscapes, a wide variety of cultures, and exotic wildlife, including a rare, wild giraffe colony, and the vast W Game Park, which is filled with protected African animals. Produced by Daniel Balluff. 2008 JSCA 30 min.
