Relying too much on its scenic African location, this British adventure moves along slowly as game warden Steel breaks up a ring of ivory smugglers. The gang's leader, Benson, has given an African tribe land in return for the tusks, but he is repaid for his scheming when the tribe turns on

sequel to IVORY HUNTERS (1951).
