THE WONDER - Lowis & Leakey presents a film by Goh Iromoto and Courtney Boyd. Featuring The Lowis Family.
"To depart on safari is not only a physical act, it is also a gesture. You leave behind the worries, the strains, the irritations of life among people under pressure and enter a world of creatures who are pressed into no moulds, but have only to be themselves; bonds loosen, anxiety fades, the mind closes against the world you left behind like a folding sea anemone. Enjoyment of the moment, the true delight in living, in life as it is and not as others have made it, all this returns. Each breath you draw gives pleasure, you wake with a new sense of wonder at the pure light shining on golden grass and the web of thorn, and the cooing of the dove."
Elspeth Huxley, The Mottled Lizard.
The footage for THE WONDER was shot on a two week safari in Kenya on an itinerary that included Shaba National Reserve, the Suguta Valley, Lake Turkana, the Aberdare National Park, Mount Kenya and the Masai Mara.
