The last thing Tim wants to do is stay in Africa with his stepbrother Martin, while he studies elephants. But one night their jeep crashes in the middle of nowhere: Martin's in danger and Tim's the only one who can help. Will Martin be eaten by lions, or worse, discovered by the poachers that roam the parks? Thrilling African adventure.
