Shadow Hunters: Wild Warriors

Shadow Hunters: Wild Warriors
Luke and Robert, are halfway through a six week anti-poaching patrol. They operate in a huge area outside the Kruger National Park, in South Africa. Most patrols last 10-14 days, but Luke and Robert are willing to go to extremes to track down the poachers, and help save the African wildlife, one poacher at a time. Weeks on patrol without washing means they have lost their human smell, which helps them get close to the animals of the bush. Time is not on their side as they have just three weeks left to make another arrest. But in this vast African wilderness, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.
