Characters present[]


Diego, Alicia, and Baby Jaguar travel to the African rainforest to visit the okapis. During a game of hide-and-seek, Okapi's brother hides too well…and gets lost! It's up to Diego and Okapi (and the viewer) to find him.


Diego, Alicia, and Baby Jaguar travel to the African rainforest to visit the okapis. After meeting Okapi and his brother, the latter tries to find a hiding spot, but goes too far and gets lost, so Diego and Okapi set out to save him and ride the Mobile Rescue Unit. Diego uses the Mobile Rescue Unit's super-crane to pull a zebra out of a sand pit, and afterwards, Okapi and the zebra compliment each other's stripes. Later, Diego uses his Super-Lift to free a giraffe caught in the tall branches. They go through a cave, and after they get out, they find Okapi's brother hiding behind a rock. Diego and the reunited Okapi brothers then return to the rainforest.
