Louis Theroux: African Hunting Holiday
BBC Earth  |  November 16, 2019

The ever-genial and disarming Louis Theroux investigates the elite world of well-heeled American hunters who pay top dollar for the ultimate luxury adventure experience: a chance to shoot big game in Africa. Lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, hippos, even rhinos are up for grabs for those with the right kind of money. Along the way, Louis meets the mum bringing her seven-year-old along so he can bag his own springbok, the CEO intent on bringing home the head of a hippopotamus and the evangelical hunting guide who compiles videos of his most spectacular kills and preaches a macho do-or-die gospel of self-actualisation through hunting.
