Summoned from the ashram in Tibet, Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) finds himself thrust into the most challenging case of his career. At the request of Vincent Cadby (Simon Callow), the English Consul General of the Bonai Province, Ace embarks on a perilous journey into the jungles of Africa. Ace’s mission: to find Shikaka, the missing sacred animal of the friendly Wachati tribe, before the wedding of the Chief’s daughter to the first son of the warrior Wachootoo tribe. If Ace fails, the result will be tribal war.
