Wild At Heart - Series 1

6 x 48

The story of a family who move to the South African bush to set up and run a game reserve – and sort out the problems within the family itself. When the series begins, Danny Trevanion (a widower and vet in his early forties) is living at home with his eighteen-year-old daughter Rosie, Sarah (his wife of six months) and Sarah’s two children from her previous marriage, eight-year-old Olivia and thirteen-year-old Evan. Family tensions are running high…but when Danny brings home a monkey whose life he saved after it was smuggled illegally into the country, Sarah decides that the family should travel together to Africa to return the monkey to its natural habitat – and their world changes forever as they adjust to life in a very different land… The family also have to contend with elephant poachers and bush fires as they attempt to build a new and exciting life for themselves under southern skies. Will they succeed?
