There are people with the remarkable talent to communicate with animals and in Dierepraters (Animal Whisperers) we get to know some of these fascinating personalities.
To communicate with animals is an age-old art that has gained new momentum and interest recently.
Although the ability of these specialists can sometimes be seen as esoteric and slightly mysterious, many of their techniques are based on science – from homeopathy and geometry to kinetics and body language.
The presenter of the series is actress Daniah de Villiers (Binnelanders), who is also an animal activist.
She is assisted by Hettie Richter, an animal communicator.
In each of the episodes, specialists in their fields share their knowledge.
We see what techniques are used to find out what domestic and wild animals think and why they react the way they do.
The series will also focus on the impact people and animals have on each other.
Other animal communicators in the series include the specialist kinesiologist Annalize Carelse, who helps cats with jealousy.
There's also Enid Fox, who shares her techniques, including how to help animals and their owners when the animal has to be put down.
Well-known animal personalities like lion whisperer Kevin Richardson, Anna Breytenbach and Groen Namibië's Marlice van Vuuren will look at the relationship between human and animal.
