There is a place in Africa where a mountain meets the sky... A place where rivers, forests and savannas play a never-ending game with people. This place lays at the foothills of Mt. Kenya, in a region called Laikipia. Here dangerous wildlife share the land with thousands of farmers and their livestock. A perfect combination for trouble... But despite all odds the people living in Laikipia are fighting to make a dream come true: in this region of Africa co-existence between the needs of humans and the necessities of wildlife is a well established and solid reality. Follow Max Graham, an elephant researcher, while he tracks down the giants of the savannah using an innovative SIM card device to stop pachyderms from raiding farmers' crops. Join Anthony King, a renowned kenyan conservationist, in his fight to slow down land degradation and erosion in the Laikipia region. Meet the Maasai people while trying to bridge the gap between their tribal traditions and a modern cash economy.
The film “Laikipia, the Land of Life” shows the reality of modern Africa and brings to the word the voices of the people who are contributing to create a successful conservation model in a fast-changing continent.
