Escape to the Wild

Series 2 - Episode 3



Jimmy Doherty travels to Uganda in the heart of Africa where he meets a couple from Aberdeen who used their life savings to buy a three-acre plot of land near the banks of the River Nile. Now they have their own working farm, but as they fight to save their land against the encroaching river and keep their five-month-old son safe from the various animals and tropical diseases that inhabit the region, Jimmy asks whether it was all worth it. However, the presenter does not have to wait long to get a first-hand idea of the problems the couple face when he comes under attack from an army of ants and African bees.
