These animals know how to hunt, and know how to hide, so you have to have eyes in the back of your head out there.
Jake: We had to have a fire going from dusk 'til dawn. get sick, the best thing you can do is rest and hydrate and stay in the shade.
Out there, a tiny cut can get infected, and you're done.
Steven: Africa is the harshest, most difficult, unforgiving terrain on the planet.
You don’t wanna startle them, so a lot of times the fire and the smoke can help keep them away, and at least alert them to your presence. You may think the biggest things to worry about are the lions and the leopards and the hyenas, but the little things can take you out faster than something chasing after you.
The best thing you can do is be smart in what you eat, and be careful not to cut yourself.
In Africa, it's not like the jungle or the rainforest, where you have all these awesome, giant palm fronds. The main thing about shelter in Africa is going to sleep at night and not having an animal eating you when you wake up in the morning. You have to stick to your ground, and once you're safe, maybe make a couple perimeters. The crazy thing is that these animals have evolved for millions of years.
It should be eight to 10 feet high, and about 6 to 8 feet wide.
There are plenty of animals, but they're on high alert.
They're used to being stalked by lions and leopards.
For smaller animals, you can set snares—a great way to hunt without having to put a lot of effort in. The other way to hunt is to make a blind and spend hours, days, whatever, until animals start walking by, and you have a better chance of a successful hunt. Herbivores and carnivores—they're all trying to get food, and all at the same time.
The best thing to do is to get a base knowledge of edible plants, and have a deep hunting background. If you’re a hunter, you know: Most of the time you go out there to bag something, you're gonna come home with memories of sitting in a tree for eight hours. Sometimes you're sitting there and a giant animal comes.
It's amazing out there, because the area that we were in—just that small area—has changed so drastically.
