The show had an interesting run in the United States. Originally, only the first season was aired. When the series Tarzan: The Epic Adventures (1996) was canceled mid-run, the networks aired episodes from the second and third seasons of this series in its place, strung together into one hour blocks.

Despite being set in Africa, the show featured only three African main characters, one in each season. At the end of the first season, Malick Bowens (as Simon Govier) decided he did not want to continue with the series. Errol Slue (Jack Benton) died at the end of the second season. William S. Taylor, hired to replace Slue, enjoyed playing the role of Dan Miller and would have gladly continued it. Unfortunately, the show ceased production after the untimely death of Sean Roberge.

Wolf Larson beat out Joe Lara for the role of Tarzan. Lara had previously starred in the made-for-TV movie Tarzan in Manhattan (1989) and would later go on to play the title role again in the series Tarzan: The Epic Adventures (1996).

Although the program is set in Africa, the elephant portraying Tantor is clearly an Asian elephant, having considerably smaller ears than her African counterparts.

Simon: I missed the city once, Jane. I missed the rush and the color, and the sight of women so beautiful in their dresses and high heels. Then I looked at this jungle, at the birds and the trees, the ground so alive beneath me, and I realized that out here in the middle of nowhere, in a place not even on the map... I was closer to God.
