Best Wildlife and Nature Documentaries

Which is the best documentary about nature and wildlife?

The Top Ten

1 Planet Earth

Yes you are right. This documentary covers it all. Its the most amazing and spectacular documentary I have ever watched. The way they have filmed is breathtaking and awesome. In this documentary, you can see the full majesty of nature and God's glorious and magnificent creatures.

The Planet earth is one of the best animal documentaries that can't be filmed again!

First of its kind... With revolutionary camera and advanced filming techniques...

Always loved nature and wildlife. I was looking for something that was complete with both. This is it. Along with great photography and HD

So thankful that Steve Irwin is up there with David Attenborough. He deserves to be!

Its awesome, just watch out you will fill with passion & love for animals.

The way they brought the dinosaurs back to life is breathtaking! - roblist

4 Chased by Sea Monsters
5 Ocean's Deadliest

Irwin died on this.

6 The Blue Planet

Stunning photography, breath-taking scenes and the best narrator there has ever been for programmes of this nature, Sir David Attenbrough

7 Life in the Undergrowth

Scary and fascinating doco about bugs and creepy crawlys that predate on each other in the most weird and violent and sometimes hilarious ways in the undergrowth.

This was fantastic! Great shot of all types of insects and arachnids, just what I like to see. I would recommend this to any invert lover.


8 Prehistoric Park

Welcome to the ultimate wildlife sanctuary.
Welcome to Prehistoric Park!

9 The Last Lions

A stunning movie about a sole lioness which has to fend for herself and her three cubs. The movie includes breath-taking scenes and had me reaching for my tissues during several scenes.

SHould easily be top 5

I saw this, liked it, it was sad how the cub broke his back though :( - PeeledBanana

10 Corwin's Quest

The Contenders

12 Great Migrations

20 Lions vs Hyenas - Eternal Enemies

24 Life
25 The Life of Mammals

Really why is this way down on the list? I have never watched a better filmed documentary quite like this one!

26 Human Planet
27 March of the Penguins
28 Life on Earth (1979)

Life on Earth is Sir David Attenborough's first instalment of the Life series, produced after he had a decade-long break from documentary making while he was head of BBC2. Although many of his more recent works are on this list, I feel none do him justice the way this one does.

29 The Deadly Series

Steve Backshall is a legend for life.

Deadly pole to pole and deadly 60 and Backshall's big adventures are out of this world.

He makes animal facts fun for kids.

He is also pretty good at dancing(he went on strictly).

He is very funny too.
