Six contestants, paired into teams of two, compete to photograph the Big Five African animals over five days in this exciting reality wildlife series. Set in Zimbabwe, South Africa, each team has five days in which to spot the ‘Big Five’ – lion, buffalo, rhino, elephant and leopard – and stay within 50 meters of each for ten minutes! Digital photographs are taken by the team members to verify each animal sighting. The winning team will be determined by the best photograph and the highest number of points accumulated through their sightings. Each team will be allocated an armed guide for protection and a spotter vehicle, but will have to track each animal without assistance. The interactions between human and beast will be breathtaking as these contestants risk life and limb to have an experience of a lifetime!
