Beautifully animated adventure about Maki, a Sudanese boy who escapes from slave traders to become the protector of Zarafa, an orphaned giraffe who in turn becomes his best friend. Taking up with a band of explorers, pirates, and merchants, young Maki goes on an incredible voyage by sea and air to accompany Zarafa to Paris, where she is to be presented as a gift from the Pasha of Egypt to the King of France. A thrilling adventure with a touch of history: there really was a giraffe called Zarafa given to Charles X who sparked a giraffe craze throughout France!
