Smithsonian Earth continues its epic journey through Zambia's Luangwa Valley with all-new episodes of AFRICA'S HUNTERS. This stunning series takes viewers into the backyard of some of Africa's greatest predators, following the lions, leopards, wild dogs and hyenas that call the region home. The second season picks up from where we left our amazing cast of characters just a year ago – checking in with the lonely lion cub Misfit of the Nsefu pride and introducing us to the new leopard queen Olimba, who's taken over from Kamuti's rule. Along the way, witness the triumphs of a hard-earned kill, the heartbreak of loss and the bonds of brotherhood that endure in the Luangwa Valley. Filmed with military-grade thermal cameras that allow the filmmakers to go unnoticed at night,AFRICA'S HUNTERS captures the every movement of these predators 24/7 over the course of several dedicated years. Viewers will get an unfiltered look into the lives of these amazing creatures like never seen before. New episodes are now available on Smithsonian Earth, which is available on Apple®, Roku®, Amazon, Android and at SmithsonianEarthTV.com.
