HGTV has unveiled the newly greenlit reno series Renovation Wild, the network’s first series based in Africa.

Promising thrilling renovations along with amazing animal sightings, the series has received an eight-episode order and is expected to premiere in the summer of 2023.

The new show will follow safari camp owners Grant and Lynsey Cummings and their children as they take on the challenges of remodeling dilapidated lodges on their remote property in Zambia. Located in a majestic national park, the camp must be built to withstand intense weather as well as multitudes of animal visitors.

Renovation Wild is produced by Remedy Television + Branded.

The Warner Bros. Discovery cable net is rolling out several new series over the course of this summer, including Flip To a Million, set for an August 1 debut, and First Home Fix, slated for an August 27 premiere.
