In this new series wildlife expert Steve Backshall goes in search of the fiercest animals on the planet.
This week he explores the wildlife in the stunning landscapes of Namibia. In the bush he tracks two hungry cheetahs as they hunt; he stakes out a carcass to get up close to vultures and he has a close call with an agitated lion as he helps a vet at work.
