Ten year-old Maki escapes from a cruel slave trader in Sudan and meets a friendly giraffe, Zarafa. When Zarafa is sent to Paris as a gift for the French King, Maki sets out to rescue her and along the way meets Bedouin princes, feisty Mediterranean pirates, a pair of very resourceful cows and a hippopotamus with a problem.
This is a beautifully crafted hand-drawn animation that takes the spirit of classic Disney and adds a splash of humour and social comment. Occasionally sad, often hilarious, Zarafa is an exciting adventure with a touch of history!
