In this episode, Sophie shares the importance of research – at home is fine, but nothing beats local knowledge, perhaps from a driver or a guide, who are already on the ground and can share their insight and intel about the animals and the area. Sophie stresses how important it is to keep yourself and the animals safe by listening to what you are told on the ground. The only way to learn is to watch the animals before you start filming, look for visual cues, like body language, and think about the animals you know, to anticipate their behaviour. Above all, treat animals with respect.
