The Momella Game Farm in Tanganyika is world-famous as a source of wild animals. When its owner is killed by a rhinoceros, his French-born daughter, Brandy, decides to carry on her father's work. Assisting her are Sean Mercer, an American game catcher embittered by a previous unhappy love affair; Kurt Stahl, a former auto racer from Germany who drives the herding jeep; Bill "Indian" Vaughn, a veteran hunter; and Pockets, a former cabbie from Brooklyn. Eventually this little group of international adventurers is joined by woman photographer Dallas and French playboy Chip Maurey, who replaces Indian when the latter is badly gored by a charging rhino. Trouble begins when Kurt and Chip compete for the attentions of Brandy, and Sean becomes infuriated by Dallas' penchant for collecting baby elephants. Gradually, however, during the many hectic safaris after wild game, the tensions are resolved. The rivalry between Kurt and Chip ends when Pockets accidentally falls from a fence and Brandy betrays her true romantic feelings by rushing up to comfort him. Following the celebration of the capture of a rhinoceros, Sean discovers that Dallas has left the farm, and he sets out to find her by using her pet baby elephants as bloodhounds. After barging through the streets, alleys, and stores of the small town of Arusha, they finally corner her in the local hotel. Sean insists upon an immediate marriage, and Dallas tearfully agrees. Their wedding night is somewhat marred, however, when Dallas' three baby elephants stampede into the bedroom.
