When Professor Benjamin Tibbets (Will Hay) travels to Africa up river to open schools for the natives, he experiences several setbacks. His new pupils are less than receptive, and when the commander of the local base goes down with malaria he takes on his duties as well. Aided by the crew of the boat on which he arrived (Moore Marriott and Graham Moffatt), he sets about collecting taxes from the locals, with hilarious results.
