When a young leopard corners a baby monkey, he plays with his prey before finally finishing the kill.
The southern coast of Africa features an array of battlefields as diverse as the predators who reign over them. In this concentrated mix of environments, lions rule the grasslands and leopards dominate the thick brush. Nile crocodiles and sharks rule the waters, while gannets control the skies.

Enter these diverse domains and see how all creatures, hunters and hunted, must have a plan to survive the Predator Coast.
