The struggle over the Bellamy estate ends with Michael Bellamy accused of murder and killed on the way to prison, while his brother, Abel Bellamy, takes control of the estate for his own nefarious plans.
Dr. John Meredith has been driven from civilization by the criminal activities of his twin brother Bradley Meredith. With his infant daughter, he settles in the African jungle, where his ability to cure the native ills has resulted in his virtual control of the Masamba tribes, who possess vast diamond mines coveted by a gang of crooks. They use Shamba, a witch doctor jealous of Dr. Meredith's influence over the tribe, to further their schemes. They lure Dr. Meredith away from the jungle, and he is murdered by "Slick" Latimer. The natives believe that a sacred amulet is the secret of Dr. Meredith's power, and Shamba attempts to kill Nyoka, Meredith's now-grown-up daughter, to obtain the amulet (which actually contains the secret to the entrance of the Caves of Nakros). Jack Stanton rescues her and assists her in her efforts to recover the amulet.

The Liberty Video version is mastered from an original UK release print, which contains minor editing of shots deemed to contain excess violence (e.g. in final episode, where two villains are brought down by native spears, the portion of each shot showing each falling over with a spear protruding from his back has been excised); as well as the British Censor's certification at the beginning of each episode, and the British distributor's name superimposed under the Republic logo.

When the directing team of Witney and English names appeared in the credits, the viewer could be assured of a superior serial.Jungle Girl fills the bill.Francis Gifford is perfect as Nyoka. Tom Neal and Eddie Acuff share the hero honors and Gerald Mohr as the chief bad guy. Trevor Bardette plays a dual roll of Nyokas father and twin brother. The quest for treasure is the main theme. Early on, Mohr kills Bardette
and replaces him with the brother also played by Bardette. It takes fifteen chapters of great cliff hangers before Bardette and Mohr are brought to justice. Exciting score and production values make Jungle Girl a superior Republic serial. Stunt work by David Sharpe and other stunt team members, keep the action moving at a fever pitch.Ten big stars !
