The second series is even more eventful than the first. The Trevanions struggle with finances whilst trying to satisfy their first proper guests with luxury accommodations and game drives. They face a new owner of Mara, the neighbouring game park, after the original one is killed whilst illegally hunting. The new owner seems even more intent on causing mayhem as he takes water from Leopard Den's watering hole and more. This series introduces more characters and more complications that are thrown at the Travanions, including a bitter inspector who nearly shuts them down, the arrival of Sarah's difficult mother Caroline, plane crashes, releasing vultures, family revelations, marriage proposals, and worst of all, to nearly end the families time in Africa, a fatal lion attack.
