On safari in darkest Africa (via the Nairobi airport), Tom and Jerry join their master on a “Nertz” rent-an-elephant. Tom hides in one of the baskets to go on the safari. All goes well until Tom discovers Jerry hiding in another basket. When the hunter discovers that he has stowaways, he tries to get rid of them both. The master finds once again that travels with Tom and Jerry can be difficult (when he is charged by a lion, he finds that Tom has replaced his gun with a thermos bottle). At tale’s end, the elephant and Jerry are carrying the spoils of the hunt- Tom, the master and a rhino- tied to a pole.
