Nice and entertaining
7 July 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

The star, Dorette Potgieter (Vicki), is sure a pretty young woman that does a great job of acting the part.

In the beginning of the movie, she is at a club or something like that dancing. It is a very fancy and civilized environment. She soon gets frustrated about her life and wants to be alone for a few days. So she decides to drive alone across Africa. Of course she has a problem and ends up walking off into the wild and uncivilized part of Africa. The one thing I don't understand is why she walked away from the road. That makes no sense, but everything else seems logical. In the beginning she is not very rational but after a while she accepts that she is lost in the wilderness and begins to be more logical.

Although there is some nudity, it is only minimal.
