Plot summary

Professor Watson and his daughter are on an expedition but their plane crashes and they are captured by the Olango tribe. The Phantom hears about this and goes there to save them. It turns out that a Phantom many years earlier saved and relocated the tribe after an attack by white men clad in metal. Since then the Phantom is the tribe's guardian spirit and the tribe's chief ventures out once every 5 years to go to the Skull cave to give thanks to the Phantom. The chief lets the trio leave the village and they decide to go back through caves running through the mountain. Here they find the Elephant's graveyard, the professor wants to take all the ivory and get rich, the Phantom thinks it is a bad idea because it may attract robbers and adventurers so close to the Olango. After some fighting and a third party poacher joins in, both the professor and the Phantom are unconscious, Linda finds bandars that take them to Dr Axel. In the end the graveyard remains a secret and both men recover.
