David Moore is in East Africa to get to his employer's railway construction site. He's accompanied by the owner's son Brian and they've lined up Jack Cuortemayn, reputedly the best guide available, to take them there. Cuortemayn refuses as he doesn't care for the impact the railroad will have on the local inhabitants. While Moore tries to make other arrangements, he meets Ruth Knight who has lived there for many years working with her father in a medical clinic. There will be adventures along the way but when Ruth is captured by slave traders, its up to the others to rescue her. Written by
Lloyd Bochner and Frankie Avalon are comical as the "bwanas" in this low-budget Hatari rip-off. Poor Mariette Hartley had this as her second movie. She has compared following the brilliant Ride The High Country with Drums of Africa to going from President to janitor in 2 days. This is overrating this incredible abomination. Poor Hari Rhodes looks ashamed to be seen by the camera in this mess.
