The Wildtuin. What hides a safari in South Africa

The open savannah, grazing elephants, mating lions, a botched land claim, a plan to catch rhino poachers, and a ranger conducting safaris where his village used to be. 

This is South Africa's most important game reserve, everything tourists pay to see and everything they pay to ignore.
