    • Synopsis
    • Tour organizer, Richard Dacier, bites off more than he can chew when
      he loses at poker to the South African mob. Coming face to face with
      Africa's cruellest Godfather, Mr. Charles, he is given two choices: either
      Charles' men kill Bako, a trusty old fellow who not only raised him but
      also runs his struggling safari company, or add an extra tourist to his
      upcoming safari and ensure the safe delivery of a locked briefcase.
      A simple task it seems... but not for Dacier who, as the result of a
      traumatic experience, has not entered the bush since he was a boy.
      As this hilarious safari of misfits lurches into action, it soon becomes
      clear that none of Dacier's guests are who they said they were, and
      as the briefcase drop goes disasterously wrong and the group find
      themselves being chased by an army of angry Mozambique rebels, the
      tourists’ true identities begin to emerge. As Dacier is forced to face his
      past, he learns a thing or two about loss, love and courage. But will
      he be able to save Bako?
