Synopsis

Mike Stacey, a big game hunter, travels to Simbasi territory while on an African safari. There he kills a lion, an animal sacred to the Simba tribe, and is consequently cursed by the tribal chief, M'Gobo. The Simbas capture Saidi, Mike's aide, and when they torture him, Mike also feels the pain. Moreover, Mike returns to Johannesburg to learn that his wife, Janet, has left him. He follows her to London and continues to suffer great physical and mental anguish, including fever, wounds, and hallucinations. Janet consults an African expert and learns that Mike must kill M'Gobo to rid himself of the curse. He returns to Africa, kills M'Gobo by running him down with his jeep, and lifts the curse.
