When Tafiti, a young meerkat, meets Bristles, the bush pig, he knows they can’t be friends. ‘Meerkats stick to their own!’ is what grandpa has always told him, as life in the desert is full of danger. But when Bristles is attacked by an eagle, it’s Tafiti who rushes to his rescue. Desperately seeking a friend, the fun-loving bush pig follows Tafiti home, unintentionally causing an unfortunate accident – Tafiti’s grandpa is bitten by a deadly poisonous snake. Only a mythical desert flower can save him. Tafiti sets off on a perilous journey to find the flower, convinced he must do it alone. It’s up to Bristles to prove that adventures are always better with friends!
