Season 2 Synopsis
It's over a year since the Trevanion family left England and settled into life in Africa. But living the dream isn't plain sailing as Danny and Sarah struggle with the demands of animals and guests.
Unexpected challenges arise when the neighbouring game park is taken over by an ambitious manager, an orphaned baby elephant ends up on their doorstep and the arrival of old friends and relatives cause friction in the family.
They all have to contend with jealousy, tragedy and unrequited love while dealing with wounded cheetahs, aggressive hippos, a one-winged vulture and angry lions.
But the biggest threat to the family's survival comes when Danny and Du Plessis are involved in a tragic accident. Will the Trevanions have to return to England after all?
