"Africa on the edge: In between serenades from camp singers and pushing an airplane out of the mud, Jack and his daughter Kathaleen discover some of the finer points of Botswana's Okavango wilderness, including how Bushmen in the Kalahari Desert extract water from roots; Game for adventure: Jack heads to a remote area of Botswana, Africa. The game safari exhibits elephants, buffaloes, lions, leopards, and cheetahs. Jack also searches for a wild dog, the rarest animal in Africa; Hippos of Kings Pool: Travel with Jack on an encounter with the "river horses" of Botswana's Kings Pool, a watering hole once visited by royalty and now inhabited by hundreds of hippos. On this adventure, discover what hippos do at night when they come out of their protective watery domain; White shark: In the chilly waters of Shark Alley near the tip of South Africa, Jack seeks out the fearsome great white shark. Submerged in a metal cage, Jack's encounter with a 14-foot great white is the experience of a lifetime; Chimpanzees of Chambura Gorge: Head with Jack to Uganda's Chambura Gorge to visit a family of forty chimpanzees who make their home in this tropical treasure, only recently discovered by a Peace Corps worker. Jack learns how to call and track chimps in the wild, then heads into the gorge to observe the chimps in their natural habitat; The game warden: Arriving at the game warden headquarters in Kenya, Jack discusses the importance of the job, conservation, and survival of elephants. While on patrol, he discovers an elephant carcass, but is unable to determine if its death was caused by poachers or natural causes."--Container.
