The hunted: they slip across borders in search of prey, boldly striking without fear. The hunters: an elite force of specially trained soldiers with orders of shoot to kill. Follow the story of one of today's most compelling dramasthe life and death struggles to save Africa's endangered animals. When poachers wiped out the last black rhino seen in Botswana in 1990, Botswana's government deployed a small army to track down the Shaile gang, a merciless band of tribesmen who butcher animals for the illegal sale of valuable ivory, and what many believe to be the potent aphrodisiac of the rhino's horn. Shot on location by famed African filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert, you'll travel to some of the most remote corners of the African bush, following a trail marked by scavengers, wire snares, and carcasses. But as these soldiers wage war against this "phantom" enemy, they are ever-aware that the real danger is the men they hunt, who are also armed to defend themselves, at any cost, against their pursuers: the Wildlife Warriors.
