Lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs, jackals—Africa’s mammalian predators are symbols of the wild, gaining renown for their captivating behaviors and exceptional hunting abilities across the continent’s untamed expanses. Want to understand how these fascinating felines and cunning canids have established themselves at the top of the African food chain? Join Expedition Leader Russell Gerber to discover the ways that these iconic creatures have evolved into such finely tuned hunting machines within the varied ecosystems of Southern and East Africa. A veteran safari guide with degrees in zoology and biology, Russell will share interesting insights into the ongoing evolutionary “arms race” between Africa’s predators and prey. Learn all about Africa’s major predators, including the unique adaptations of each species, their hunting strategies and techniques, preferred prey species, predator hierarchies, potential risks to predators, and different species’ hunting success rates.
