Naturally, their contrasting approaches to buying suitable cars are matched by their contrasting attitudes to photography, none of which are conventional nor especially effective since animals initially prove to be absent or just very good at hiding, leading the hosts on an epic and increasingly challenging trip across one of the most stunning and fascinating countries on earth.
