This documentary tells the unique story of Dr. Sue Hart, the first female wildlife vet in Africa doing extraordinary pioneering work by operating on wild animals in the bush under the post primitive of conditions.

The world-famous US television series Daktari, featuring veterinarian Marsh Tracy and the cross-eyed lion Clarence, is well-known all over the world. Sue Hart's life was the role model behind the successful series, but this was only Hollywood.

The Real Daktari is a true story about a strong and determined female vet. There are hidden depths to this remarkable woman: her vision and compassion, her philosophy and teaching, her caring and humanity, her creation of the "Ecolink" for conservation, education and humanitarian causes, her romance and hte love of nature. When Sue speaks, people listen! But who will care when she is no longer with us? Who will carry her great legacy forward?
