Adventurer Ben Fogle joins Dr Grant Hopcraft to find out where the wildebeest herds are and how far their four collared females have travelled on their migration. The girls are part of a 1.3 million strong herd that has split into the Northern and Southern herds, but as they move west, they travel into prime poaching territory. Each year, about 100,000 wildebeest are caught in snares or shot with arrows as they are illegally hunted for bush meat, and Ben meets a group of reformed poachers to see their work on a project aiming to reduce these killings.
