In this collection, Peskett's footage documents his time, either as part of work duties or as leave, travelling through countries near the East African coastline. Peskett visits Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya as well as Rhodesia and southern Sudan. His footage examines mainly the natural aspects of the countries he visits on safari with his family, focusing on waterfalls, rivers, lakes, landscapes and the various types of wildlife that inhabit them. However, Peskett also documents political aspects of newly emancipated African countries, such as the first parliamentary elections held in Uganda in 1961. Peskett also references the history of the countries he visits, filming the Great Zimbabwean Ruins, Cecil John Rhodes' grave and the ruins of explorer Samuel Baker's camp in Gulu, northern Uganda.
