Jeremy Wade takes on Africa’s wild Zambezi River to unmask an invisible predator that’s dragging fisherman to their deaths. 
Crocs and hippos are guilty of killing dozens of victims in plain view, yet it seems there is another monstrous beast stalking these deep and turbulent waters. Locals speak of the ‘Mazunda’, but what is this sinister, child-swallowing creature? 
Plunging gorges and boat-battering rapids make the Zambezi one of the most treacherous places Jeremy has ever fished. But when he hears an eyewitness account of a fifteen foot leviathan, there is no turning back.
