Mijają lata, od kiedy Tarzan, opuścił afrykańską dżunglę na rzecz cywilizowanego życia w Londynie. Jako John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke decyduje się wrócić do Konga, gdzie ma pełnić funkcję emisariusza rządu z misją handlową. Nie zdaje sobie jednak sprawy z tego, że jest pionkiem w śmiertelnie niebezpiecznej grze targanego wolą zemsty, chciwego kapitana Leona Roma z Belgii. Okazuje się, że osoby stojące za zabójczym spiskiem nie mają pojęcia, co rozpęta się za ich sprawą.


  After being shipwrecked, John Clayton, his wife Alice, and newborn son John Clayton III are stranded in a tree house in the jungle of the African Congo. His wife eventually dies of natural causes, and John is killed by Apes, leaving the baby alone. The child is taken in by a family of Apes: his mother whom he calls Kala and his brother whom he calls Akut. Given the name Tarzan, he is raised by them and adapts well, becoming a part of the jungle as if he were made for it. Later, he meets a woman, Jane Porter, and falls in love with her. Shortly after, Kala is killed by a young hunter who is part of another tribe. Tarzan kills him in retaliation, unaware that he was the son of a chief.

As a result of the Berlin Conference, the Congo has been divided up between Belgium and the United Kingdom. The Belgian government is on the verge of bankruptcy, having gone into heavy debt to build a national railroad and other infrastructure. In response, King Leopold II of Belgium decides to extract the Congo’s rich mineral deposits, sending his envoy Léon Rom to secure the fabled diamonds of Opar. An expedition led by him is ambushed and massacred, with only Rom surviving. A tribal leader, Chief Mbonga, offers him the diamonds in exchange for Tarzan.

John Clayton III has returned to England to become Lord Greystoke, and through the British Prime Minister, he is invited by King Leopold to visit Boma and report on the development of the Congo by Belgium. An American envoy, George Washington Williams, urges John to go, as he knows that he is Tarzan. John initially declines the invitation, but Williams, who suspects that the Belgians are enslaving the Congolese population, persuades him to accept it. Jane is disappointed when John tells her that she cannot come on the trip due to losing their baby years ago. Eventually, he reconsiders and allows her to go with him.

John, Jane, and Williams take their trip to the Congo. The trio encounter a tribe that knew John and Jane during their stay in the jungle. Having tracked them, Rom and his mercenaries attack the tribe’s camp and tie up John and Jane, killing the tribe’s leader in the process. They then escape with Jane and several of the tribe’s members while leaving John behind. With the aid of the tribe’s warriors, John and Williams intercept a Belgian military train carrying captured slaves. They discover that Rom intends to use the diamonds to pay for a massive army to subdue the Congo and allow Belgium to mine its wealth for Leopold’s benefit.

Together with Wasimbu, an old friend of John’s, Jane escapes Rom’s boat. Meanwhile, John and Williams encounter a grown Akut, who is now the leader of the Apes. Aware that Akut considers him a deserter, John challenges him to a fight and loses. While attempting to recapture Jane, Rom’s men open fire on the troop, killing several of them.

Reconciling with Akut, John pursues Rom, but is quickly cut off by Mbonga’s tribe. He bests them in hand-to-hand combat and comes close to killing Mbonga when Williams arrives and convinces them to let him go free. Rom takes Jane and the diamonds to Boma, where he plans to take control of the army. Williams and Akut trigger a massive stampede of wildebeest, distracting the soldiers and allowing John to rescue Jane. With his boat sinking, Rom tries to kill John, but ends up being eaten by crocodiles.

Williams returns to England and presents the Prime Minister with evidence exposing the slave trade in the African Congo. One year later, John and Jane, having settled in Jane’s father’s old house, welcome their first child.
