The celebrities have to learn how to become game rangers. Every day they have to undertake tasks set by their instructors, both experienced rangers, and at the end of each week the two worst trainees face a head-to-head challenge to remain in Africa.

Each week, one of them has to go home until the fourth week when one leaves every day. When it gets down to the final two, each one has to take a group of three top conservationists on a game drive which might include changing a tyre or having to face down a charging elephant. The conservationists then decide the winner by judging who has learnt the most in four weeks of training and delivered the most convincing performance as a ranger. And then the winner gets to release two big cats, a lion and a leopard, into a new Born Free Foundation enclosure in the African bush.
