Another conflict that is portrayed is man vs. nature because Rainsford has to try to survive on the island. He runs around the jungle coming across traps and obstacles.
On the last day of the "hunt/game" Rainsford was surrounded by General Zaroff. He decided in order to save himself he would have to take a risk. So he did he jumped off the cliff into the sea.
