Stalked by lions, hyenas and aggressive crocodiles, 13 all-star survivalists try to survive for 40 days in Africa's sun-scorched Selati Basin. Resources are scarce and when one group scavenges meat, hungry predators stalk their camp.
An attack by a venomous predator puts one of the survivalists at risk just three days into the challenge. With food scarce, the other competitors hunt warthogs and impalas but as they track their prey, the survivalists are also being stalked.
One survivalist takes a huge risk and enters a leopard kill zone to secure a big kill for his team. A massive storm unleashes torrential rains on each camp and the temperature plummets nearly 40 degrees. The brutal conditions force a survivalist to leave.
Freezing rainstorms torture the remaining survivalists, risking severe hypothermia, and a successful hunt ends up backfiring and could cost two survivalists the challenge.
