An old-fashioned safari adventure!

Taylor, an engineer, has been nominated for completing the first African railroad, to run from Mombasa to Lake Victoria in East Africa...

Taylor ends his journey with his sidekick, Anthony Newley (providing a sort of Sancho Panza character) and comes up with a young English girl (the red-haired Anne Aubrey) who is attempting to find her lost father and her fiancé who have disappeared in the jungle...

Though warned of the obstacles of the journey, Aubrey insists on going along, and soon falls in love with Taylor... Aubrey discovers that her father is dead and that her fiancé has become an alcoholic, but, of course, Taylor repays the two losses...

Gregoire Aslan portrays the magnificent enemy, an Arab slaver who wants to get the railroad to make easier the transportation of his slaves...

Photographed in Tanganyka and England with fascinating shots of a variety of wildlife, "Killers of Kilimanjaro" is an old-fashioned safari adventure full of action and wild animals...
