Chris, a 12-year-old boy from from the Southside of Chicago, is having a hard time adjusting to his new life in the remote western Serengeti, Africa, after moving there with his parents to help them run a tented safari camp. While school and friends were the norm in his old life, this new reality is filled with lonely days, an unpredictable Internet service, and wild animals roaming through the camp. Then, Chris befriends Khalid, a young Maasai warrior who comes to work at the camp as a security guard, and who teaches this very American boy about the Swahili language, the land and the animals that are an integral part of the Serengeti. When an elephant near the camp's property is illegally hunted for its ivory tusks, Chris finds himself drawn into a battle to save the place he now calls home.
