In the Okavango Delta, Billy, the little mischievous meerkat, and his best (and only) pal Socrates, the friendly lion, wait for the annual flood, essential to the Delta and all the animals living there.

Wanting to prove to his adoring son Junior that he’s not the screwball loser everyone, sometimes justifiably so, thinks he is, Billy sets out to find water, accompanied by Socrates.

On their journey, they meet a truly wild and funny bunch of animals from all over the world, who have flocked to Africa in search of a new home.
