His wife Sarah suggests they go to Africa to rehabilitate the monkey in the hopes that a holiday will bring the troop closer together. The business trip becomes a permanent adventure and throughout the series we see the Trevanions settle into life in the bush and work to start up a game park.
They are faced with many challenges along the way, including lethal snakebites, a deadly strain of anthrax, darting lionesses, missing children, uninvited guests, and a rival game park whose manager causes plenty of trouble when he can.
