My African Adventure

Uncle Erik and the kids are back!

Visit the movie’s homepage

My Sister’s Kids win a trip to Africa, but their parents can’t go because they don’t have vacation. As always, Uncle Erik has to step in and he goes to Africa with the kids. In Africa they live next to an animal shelter where they are going to help the animals.

The idyll is quickly shattered, though, when it turns out Mrs. Flinth has also travelled to Africa to get away from her neighbours’ kids. But when she is being kidnapped by two poachers, Uncle and the kids must begin a blazing hunt across the African savannah to save Mrs. Flinth as well as the animals stolen by the poachers.

”Save the endangered species” is a big theme in My African Adventure. The Berg family wins a journey to Africa. The kids insist on going to Africa and participate in charitable work with endangered animals. Since neither of the parents has the time to go with them, they persuade their uncle Eric to go instead. In Africa they live on a farm that doubles as a veterinarian hospital and a hotel. Uncle Eric and the kids are surprised to find that Mrs Flinth, their harsh neighbour from Denmark, is also staying at the farm, with her young niece Julie. On the farm the kids help the vets take care of leopards, monkeys and elephants in the hope of restoring them into the wild. As a part of the journey the kids leave the farm to go on a tent camp on the wild African savannah. The trip is disrupted when Mrs Flinth gets kidnapped by poachers, who are in the area to steal animals and rhinoceros horns. Uncle Eric and kids go after the poachers in an action packed car chase through the African savannah, to rescue Mrs Flinth and the stolen animals.
