Mike Bolhuis, private investigator, security consultant.

Often speaking about private investigators bring up romantic TV images of fast cars, fast women and Hawaiian shirts.

The harsh reality cannot be farther from the truth in South Africa. Mike has seen the worst that the nation has to offer. Drugs, kidnapping and violent crime.

With a soft spot for animals and victims of violent crime he is often a last hope for those failed by the SAPS.

We get a glimpse of the man who made fighting crime his mission in life for the past 35 years.

He comes and shares his story with us.

Martin Dreyer, The Dusi Duke and Hardman

Legendary South African hardman Martin Dreyer is joining us on the show.

The Dusi Duke takes us back to his days as a commercial fisherman in Canada. We discuss his record and secrets on the infamous Dusi Canoe Marathon and how he beat the best adventure racers in the world on the gruelling Land Rover G4 Challenge.

He tells us all about his adventures on the brutal 2300km Freedom Challenge and the new challenges as the man behind the Change a Life Academy.
Now Martin is fully committed to Family adventure, having recently paddled with his Family (kids 8yrs & 10yrs) around Mauritius, unsupported, camping on the beaches & is about to embark on his next Family adventure, the Nine Peaks Challenge (climbing the highest peak in each of SA's 9 Provinces.

We ask him how to mentally deal with overwhelming odds and managing physical pain.

Martin is a legend on the South African endurance racing scene and is changing lives one Dusi at a time.

If you like to sweat, blood, mud and bad weather, this show is for you.

Eeben Barlow from Executive Outcomes & STTEP

For any war and history buff the name Eeben Barlow and Executive Outcomes paints romantic pictures of neverending bushwars in Africa.

Executive Outcomes was one of the most effective fighting forces that came out of the South African Borderwar.

Assisting the government STTEP fought a secret war with the Nigerian Army and devestated Boko Haram with lessons learnt in Angola.

When it comes to war in Africa, nobody knows more than Eeben Barlow.

We get a glimpse of the harsh realities from the man himself.

Frans van Dyk, RECCE & Big Game Hunter.

Frans van Dyk lived a life many young men dream of but few get to experience.

With Operator Badge #13 Frans van Dyk was instrumental in establishing the reputation of the South African Special Forces as a member of 5 Recce during the Border War. In the show he takes us though his career from how they survived selection to how they chose gear and planned operations.

After service he became a big game professional hunter. He tells us how to hunt an elephant and how to survive a leopard attack.

He shares with us a moment where he tought his time was finally up.

We were fortunate enough to record the show sitting by the fire having drinks and braaing with the man.

Stories like his need to be told.
