On the edge of a majestic waterfall, nestled in the shell of an enormous Baobab tree is a bustling city of birds called Zambezia. Famous for being the safest city in all of Africa, Zambezia has become the breeding sanctuary throughout the river valley where birds of every feather can flock together in harmony and peace. Kai (a young Falcon) leaves his remote outpost against his Father’s wishes to join the prestigious Hurricane defense flyers that patrol the skies keeping Zambezia safe. Kai’s father goes after him but is captured by the notorious Budzo, a giant lizard who has conspired with the scavenging Marabous to take over Zambezia. Kai learns of his father’s capture and finds himself at the centre of that deadly plot. If Kai is to save Zambezia, he will have to learn that not all battles are won with fast and fancy flying.
Kai, a high-spirited falcon on the cusp of adulthood is bored and lonely living in a remote outpost with only his strict father, Tendai, for company. Forbidden from venturing beyond the Katungu Boundary, his suspicions that there must be more to life are confirmed when Gogo, a kooky Stork and her co-pilot, a cute weaver called Tini, crash into his world. From them, Kai learns that downriver is a bustling bird city with exciting opportunities for a talented flier such as himself. In an angry exchange with his father, Kai discovers that Tendai has known all along about Zambezia and has been there himself! Hurt and angry at his father’s betrayal, Kai leaves Katungu and journeys downriver. Arriving at the famed bird city – a majestic Baobab perched on the edge of Victoria Falls – Kai s amazed by the throngs of birds from all over Africa who are busy preparing for the Spring Celebrations. He soon befriends a fast-talking Nightjar called Ezee who knows how to enjoy the perks of community life and guides him through the city. Kai is bowled over when he meets Zoe, a beautiful and feisty Black-Shouldered Kite who is the adopted daughter of Sekhuru, Zambezia’s founder. Unfortunately for him, Kai doesn’t make a good first impression when he accidently ruins her Spring Celebration decorations. But he is thrilled when his skilful flying earns him a place on the Hurricanes, the elite defense patrol made up of the best fliers on Zambezia. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to him and the rest of the Zambezians, Marabou Storks, tired of scavenging off the scraps of Zambezia have joined forces with Budzo, a vicious egg-eating Leguaan, and hatched a plan to take control of the island city. To make matters worse, Budzo captures Kai’s father and all of the weavers, including Tini. In order to save Zambezia and Tendai, Kai has to face his past and learn that no matter how fast and talented a flier he is, no bird is an island.
