The Last Safari

Photojournalist Elizabeth L Gilbert set out on a journey through remote Africa to present slide shows to Maasai warriors, whom she documented in her books decades earlier.

Many have never seen photos of themselves before, let alone a projection on a silver screen under the stars. The Last Safari is a documentary project ‘in motion’ that in part, sets out to discover the role of tradition in a rapidly changing world.

If you would like to support Elizabeth finishing this project in time for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival submissions, please visit here.

About Holly Meadows

Born and raised in the rural British Counties, my mother began life on a sugar farm in Zululand. After reading Anthropology at university in London, working for a political activist filmmaker in India, and doing a short stint under the bright lights of Bollywood – I decided it was time to return to the motherland. To earn a crust in the name of wanderlust, I finished up a post grad in media and hotfooted around South Africa as a freelance travel journalist. Now, I’ve landed up in the hallways of Safari magazine. If your heart beats for Africa follow this blog & check out Safari.

    The video was most enjoyable. To travel to Kenya is on my “Bucket List”…perhaps One day I shall achieve this. The Maasai have remained fascinating!!
