Summary
As South Africa emerges from the shadow of apartheid, Alan Alda tours a wildlife park where managers keep nature in balance by controlling wildlife populations and maintaining a diverse landscape. He travels to a black township that relies on herbal medicines to keep the population healthy, and visits a shop where Mr. Cele prescribes special plants for patients and helps preserve endangered plants by keeping a garden of rare trees and shrubs
