Uncle Scrooge McDuck and his nephews Donald Duck with the scintillating trio of little ducks, Huey, Dewey and Louie, are on their way to Africa so the patriarch of the clan can bid on -- and hopefully buy -- the famous Kaffir de Gaffir gold mine. Little does Scrooge know, however, that his arch rival, Flintheart Glomgold, also has eyes to own the mine and is determined to keep Scrooge from getting it!
After their private plane is shot down, the ducks must rely on the boys' copy of the Junior Woodchucks Guide Book instruction section on how to make animal-taming whistles so they can "hitch rides" on passing fauna and fowl: lions, hippopotamuses, crocodiles, cape buffaloes, warthogs, ostriches, elephants, giraffes, zebras, gemsboks, impalas, jackals and, yes, even rhinoceroses, to help convey them to their destination.
Far Out Safari was taken from a simple cover design Carl Barks drew for Uncle Scrooge #61, published in January 1966, illustrating the lead story inside, So Far and No Safari. Far Out Safari was printed by the Black Box of Chicago, image size 7 1/2x10 on 11x13 Opalesque Keramique, a paper constructed of 100% cotton fibre for strength and longevity, guaranteed not to fade under normal and stable storage conditions for hundreds of years.
