~ Ok, when I was on vacation, I watched a mini-marathon of this show (Friday night). They were in Africa in one episode, and I thought it was pretty good. (At least they didn't squeeze the water out of elephant dung.)
I totally wouldn't have walked up to that freshly killed wildebeest though.
I know they were hungry, but lions hunt in groups, and I don't know if their spears would've protected them from several female lions, or a couple of males fighting for their food. That wasn't smart. They might could keep a lion at bay in front of them, but at the same time, they also attack from behind... They're good at it.
I guess they never saw the movie Out of Africa...
