A separate camera crew follows the pursuing unit

Overview of Episode: Ex-Navy SEAL Joel Lambert is hunted across a private game reserve in South Africa as he faces off against one of the most specialized forces yet, the International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF). With the reserve full of deadly animals including lions, leopards, elephants, and rhinos, Joel must be hyper aware of both the hunter force behind him – and the dangerous game ahead. Composed of ex-military and ex-poachers, the IAPF’s keen tracking skills allow them to spot even the faintest hint of Joel, without the aid of high tech assets. But when the IAPF finds a pride of lions on the prowl, the hunt changes to a life-and-death rescue mission to find Joel before he drinks a lion’s driz.[clarification needed] Joel does not believe that there are lines[clarification needed] after him as he thinks that it is a plot to get him to stop, so he continues.
