Disc 1
Episode 1
Danny and Sarah Trevanion take their family to Africa to return a vervet monkey to the wild and enjoy a much-needed vacation. Danny gets exasperated with stepson Evan, and hostility flares between Sarah and stepdaughter Rosie. Could Africa really be the change they all need?

Episode 2
The Trevanions get up close to the local wildlife—a marauding lion, a deadly cobra, and a grizzled and bad-tempered old Afrikaner who wants them to help him run a game reserve. They also meet the owner of a rival reserve, who seems more predatory than any wild animal.

Episode 3
As the Trevanions and their business partner, Du Plessis, try to build up the reserve, Sarah’s ex-husband unexpectedly arrives with his young new wife, determined to take his children back to England. The family’s African adventure seems about to end prematurely until a voice of reason appears from a most unlikely source.

Disc 2
Episode 4
Sarah searches for Evan and Olivia, who have run away after a series of fights, while Danny and Du Plessis look for a half-drugged lioness that has escaped from the reserve. But what if the wild animal proves to be the best tracker of them all?

Episode 5
The females in the elephant compound are getting along better than those in the Trevanion household—and the first paying guests arrive at a reserve without electricity or lighting. Somehow, the rival game-reserve owner seems to have a hand in the mess.

Episode 6
Danny and Du Plessis suspect poachers have been killing the wildlife and take arms to root them out. Soon the Trevanions discover an even deadlier threat to the reserve, one that endangers the human residents along with the animals.

I love this series: The characters are explored very well so that it's easy to understand why they do what they do. The animals, setting and culture in Africa are fascinating and educational. The acting is superb. I purchased the first season as a gift. I wish all seasons were available at a reasonable price.

Despite paying $22 for Second Day Air shipping, I never received this item. I spoke with customer service reps at Acorn on two separate ocassions; they were very nice and refunded $8 of the shipping cost but otherwise were unable to do anything about the missing package. Finally, I had to cancel my credit card payment. Then I found the exact same DVDs at Amazon.com (for $50 LESS on the total purchase) with free shipping...they arrived within a week of placing the order. It is highly unlikely that I will order from Acorn ever again.

I watched this series myself on another venue, then purchased the Series One DVD for my parents, who are also animal lovers. They, too loved the series, with the incredible scenery, gorgeous animals, and well-developed (and interesting) characters. We can hardly wait until the ENTIRE set (i.e. ALL the series) is available for region 1!

Interesting Show

This is another of many shows I wish BBC America would offer. I also hope Acorn offers the rest of this series soon on DVD. The entire series, 1 - 7, in one set would be nice, as Series 7 is currently wrapping up in the UK. Supposedly this is the final season. I would love to be able to download or purchase this as soon as possible!

Great show.

First I like Stephen Tompkinson and it's about something that I don't know anything about.
