Synopsis
The Black Mambas are South Africa‘s first all-female anti-poaching unit, chosen by the white and male-dominated conservation authorities. Their fight against poaching challenges the role of women (and men) in their communities and South African society at large.
The three women could not be more different. For Nkateko, the ranger job is only a start. She has grander career goals within conservation. Qolile trains anti-poaching dogs to support her children while her husband is looking for a job. Naledi is an idealist who sees the Black Mambas as the epitome of female empowerment.
