A Far Off Place is a Disney, Amblin Entertainment and Touchwood Pacific Partners film from 1993, starring Reese Witherspoon, Ethan Embry, Jack Thompson, and Maximilian Schell. The filming locations were in Namibia and Zimbabwe. It is based on Laurens van der Post's works, A Far-Off Place (1974) and its prequel A Story Like the Wind (1972).
The witty Nonnie and the stuck-up city-boy Harry are the only ones to survive a massacre of a gang of poachers among the gamekeeper's family on her lonesome farm in the savanna. Now the ruthless murderers are after them as the only witnesses. Without a means of transportation, the only way to escape is to walk through 2000 kilometers of Kalahari desert with the help of the African bushman Xhabbo. On the months-long journey ahead they not only become good friends against their differences, but also realize that every one of them has strength and skills that are required to survive.
