Tucked in a small shed, Safari’s holiday is shaping up to be the usual routine of not getting out until his neighbor Kiki interrupts his solitude. Kiki, bothered by Safari’s lock up, chatters on about her exploring adventures, imitating both animals she has seen and those yet to be seen. This draws Safari’s attention as he talks of his desire to go see as many wild animals in their natural habitat as possible and above all, Jumbo, his favorite elephant. Excited by their new friendship, Kiki convinces Safari to go travel the country. It’s while on their adventures that Safari learns that Jumbo was killed by poachers. It gets more personal when he learns his former partner is involved in the syndicate and the two children work together to put a stop to it. The tale of Safari and his friend Kiki’s adventure touches on many elements of life in rural Kenya today – from living with disabilities to poaching and yet manages to convey the playfulness of a traditional children’s adventure story.
