Follow in the Footsteps of Jane Goodall
Marking the release of the new, critically acclaimed biographic film Jane, bespoke travel outfitter Natural World Safaris (www.naturalworldsafaris.com) presents two safaris for guests to follow in the footsteps of Jane Goodall, the inspirational primatologist whose work with chimpanzees in Tanzania revolutionised understandings of the natural world.
Featuring never-seen-before footage hidden in the National Geographic archives, award-winning director Brett Morgen explores Jane’s passion for wildlife through a narrative perspective. The Jane Goodall Institute continues today to advocate for the protection of wildlife and the environment, in honour of the woman who became one of the world’s most admire conservationists.
Guests travelling with Natural World Safaris can gain a valuable insight to this work on the following safaris:
