Two Zambian safari resorts will get the HGTV treatment in Renovation Wild, premiering Monday, May 15 at 9|8c. Set amongst the extraordinary surroundings of the majestic Lower Zambezi National Park, the eight-episode series will chronicle the incredible journey of resort owners, Grant and Lynsey Cumings, and their children as they work arm-in-arm with their right-hand man and project manager, Ngoli, and resort manager, Juliet, to take on the challenges of renovating in a remote locale. Throughout the season, they'll face an array of logistical nightmares including monsoon season, extreme supply chain issues and countless exotic wildlife encounters that threaten to halt their plans to upgrade their resort in the middle of the African bush.

"There's nothing more challenging than creating beauty when Mother Nature seems to be out to get you with every move you make," says Grant. "I was born here in Zambia, our safari lodges are here and we're raising our family here, so everything is on the line. And it's survival of the fittest out there."

In the first episode, the Cumings family will start renovating their most dilapidated villas first at Old Mondoro, just as the rainy season storms begin. Together they'll lay out the design plans to update the reed villas, refinish the en-suite bathrooms and install a one-of-a-kind al fresco washroom. Later, Grant and Lynsey will head over to their sister property, Chiawa, to make a game plan for its luxe renovation.
