A watchable basic comedy
2 January 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Richard DACIER owns a tour agency specialized on organizing safaris for European tourists eager to confront the African wild life. Actually, he took the job after his father and never went into the savanna by himself. As he owes big money to some mobster, he is compelled to convey a fake tourist, with a suspicious suitcase, toward Mozambic. To avoid suspicion from the authorities, he is supposed to tour a group of tourists as usual. The only problem : he is completely unexperienced as a guide ! Hence follows a comedy which is basically a tour of Kruger park. Some funny moments, and if you do not expect too much, pretty watchable movie.
