This beautiful animation starts with the colours and sounds of Africa and tells the story of brave young Maki and his escape from slave traders.

Making a long journey across the fiercely hot desert he befriends a baby giraffe, Zarafa, and a kindly Bedouin called Hassan. Together they travel to the ancient city of Alexandria, before climbing aboard a magic air balloon which flies them to 19th-century Paris where they present Zarafa to the King.

Using a range of colours and a classic drawing style, this moving and engaging film will appeal to adults and children alike.

Recommended Age 6+
