Normally animal shelters are the last refuge for unfortunate creatures. But in Namibia, Southern Africa, there is a different kind of shelter: a ten thousand hectare orphanage - a haven for wildanimals. The residents are rather exotic- lions, baboons and cheetahs. The two-legged stars of the series are the volunteers. Their tasks are rather unusual too: driving straight into the bush to feed lions and cheetahs, taking daily walks with a hoard of crazy baboons,capturing runaway meerkats.
