Beryl Markham, a prolific lady bush pilot of the 1930's was invited to be in this movie playing herself, flying the sorties used. Her father trained horses in Africa, where she learned the adventurous life. Beryl soloed in a Gypsy Moth aircraft in 1931. She became an intrepid pilot, loved flying in the African bush, and hence a natural to participate in "Safari", doing what she did in real life. In the 1930's she developed her own method of flying her aircraft over game lands, spotting the location of elephants and other game, then over the safari hunters to direct them to the game. Around 1936, she flew the Atlantic solo from England to Nova Scotia. This feat likely put her in the limelight that led her to Safari. Her Atlantic fight is a later chapter in her autobiography "West With The Night" (1942). A later critical biography on Beryl Markham, "Straight on Till Morning" was written by Mary Lovell (1987).
"Safari" was Beryl's only movie.
I wish I knew where I could get to see this 'Safari', or obtain a copy VHS or CD.
