The African Bush Camps Foundation is honoured to be able to call British actress, Ellie Bamber, an Ambassador for the work that we do in Zimbabwe, Botswana & Zambia.

Ellie spent time visiting and learning about the partnerships and initiatives with the communities we are working to empower during a visit to Zimbabwe in July 2017. The visit inspired her to assist with raising awareness of our work, leveraging on unique opportunities she has by connecting with and inspiring many people through her work in film and theatre.

Ellie stayed at Somalisa Camp in Hwange National Park and during her visit she learned about our projects in the area, including a visit to the Umtshibi Camp Pre-school, Hwange Main Camp Primary School and the Secondary School & some of the income generation projects in Dete. After her visit Ellie said that; “The thing that really resonated with me is the fact they are helping people and animals simultaneously. It’s such a great cause and one I’m really passionate about.”

The thing that really resonated with me is the fact they are helping people and animals simultaneously. Its such a great cause and one that I’m really passionate about.

Looking forward, Ellie will be working to run events and raise awareness in her endeavours around the world and will periodically return to Zimbabwe to visit the projects and see their progress. We are very excited to have Ellie on board.

We asked Ellie a few questions to help understand a bit more about her what inspired her to kindly take up the role as African Bush Camps Foundation Ambassador.


African Bush Camps Foundation (ABCF): It is really great that you have decided to support and help raise awareness about the work the African Bush Camps Foundation does in Zimbabwe, Botswana & Zambia. What made you want to take on the role of an ambassador?

Ellie: I went on holiday to Zambia and Zimbabwe this year, and whilst there I had the opportunity to see so much of the amazing work ABC do and it was just incredibly inspiring. Firstly, can I just say that it was an absolute honour to be asked to be their ambassador! All the things I saw, the people I met, their dedication to improving and making a better and safer life for themselves and the wildlife, there was no question for me to want to help.

ABCF: Where did you grow up, and has there always been an interest in community and conservation in your life?

Ellie: I was born in Surrey but grew up in a country village in Berkshire that has a great community which works hard to protect and conserve the village and surrounding natural areas, so yes I have grown up and have been instilled with a strong sense and knowledge and importance of both.

ABCF: Through your work as an actress in film, television and theatre you have a unique reach of people. What would be the key message about The African Bush Camps Foundation you would like people to know about?

Ellie: My message would be that when I saw what was being done by ABC, the way they work along-side the local communities, in a non-profit aid to conservation in partnership with the local people and also to help the wildlife – it made me feel humble and very lucky and ultimately want to help.
This was a life-changing trip for me.

ABCF: You visited Zimbabwe, and experienced a safari with African Bush Camps, in July 2017. How did you enjoy it? Are there any wildlife sightings or experiences that you still really treasure?

Ellie: Oh wow the safaris were incredible experiences. Getting up in the early hours with the excitement of what you might see, set in the beauty of the surroundings, was jaw dropping in fact! I loved the elephants and was especially excited when we saw Cecil’s Pride!
All the guides are so knowledgeable that I learnt so many interesting facts!

ABCF: What is your favourite African wild animal, and why?

Ellie: The Elephants! When I watched them in their natural habitat, taking in their sheer enormity but yet seeing how gracefully they move both the young and the old together, just so beautiful and majestic.

ABCF: The ethos of our work is to partner with rural communities located in vulnerable wildlife areas to improve their quality of life and achieve long-term conservation. You visited some of the projects whilst you were in Zimbabwe. How did you enjoy meeting the Zimbabwean people and communities we work with?

Ellie: Where do I start! I met the Rangers, I met their families, I met children of all ages and actually didn’t want to leave! The people are so genuine and it was great to meet and chat to the children too. They were just beyond excited to show and tell me all about the new classroom and toilet facilities that are now being added thanks to the work of ABC.

Ellie Bamber attends the Chanel Haute Couture Spring Summer 2018 Show as part of Paris Fashion Week on January 23, 2018 in Paris, France. Check out the photos by clicking on the thumbnails below:

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter: “I’m hoping it rains today, because I want to go outside and play,” Bamber said of her clear Chanel cape and boots, making her perhaps the only person feeling the sentiment in Paris after days of downpours. The Nocturnal Animals star said that after working with Chanel for several red carpets, the house stylists “know I like to go a little bit crazy.” Chanel “is so elegant, but keeps an edge that I really love. Karl always keeps it young and fresh,” she said.

A new version of the classic story of “Les Miserables” is in the works, though this one will not feature music like the 2012 film!

Lily Collins is set to play Fantine in the upcoming six-part mini-series for the BBC, while Ellie Bamber will play the adult version of her daughter Cosette.

The story will follow “French convict Jean Valjean (Dominic West) and his struggles to escape his past while being hunted for years over a parole violation by Inspector Javert (David Oyelowo), set against the backdrop of the uprising of 1832.”

The six-part adaptation of “Les Misérables” will be written by Andrew Davies, who most recently turned “War & Peace” into a six-part series for BBC and A&E Networks. It will be a co-production by BBC Studios and Lookout Point for BBC and Masterpiece. It will be globally distributed outside the US by BBC Worldwide. Filming will begin in February 2018 in Belgium and Northern France.

Weinstein TV was originally set to co-produce the project and serve as distributor in the U.S. and China. However, they were dropped as a partner on the project due to allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Harvey Weinstein.

Davies, Faith Penhale for Lookout Point, Bethan Jones for BBC Studios, Mona Qureshi for BBC One, Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece, West, and Oyelowo will serve as executive producers. The six, one-hour episodes will be produced by Chris Carey and directed by Tom Shankland. The drama was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, director of BBC Content.

“Les Misérables” has been the subject of numerous adaptations on film, television, and the stage since its original publication. Most recently, Universal Pictures released a film version based on the musical in 2012 starring Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Javert, and Anne Hathaway as Fantine. The film won three Academy Awards that year, including Best Supporting Actress for Hathaway

Disney has released the first trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, revealing the brand new adaptation of the classic story. Directed by Lasse Hallstrom (Chocolat), the film largely takes place in a stranger and mysterious parallel world, which is home to Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. But Clara (Mackenzie Foy) enters the Fourth Realm to take on a tyrant called Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren) as well as a gang of mice, who hold the key to Clara’s escape.

It all looks pretty enchanting and so decadently theatrical. The Nutcracker is a Christmas classic for good reason, and I can’t wait to see the fantastical story through Disney’s big-budget, magic-spinning lens.

Check out the Nutcracker and the Four Realms trailer below. The film also stars Morgan Freeman, Misty Copeland, Miranda Hart, Eugenio Derbez, Jack Whitehall, and Ellie Bamber. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms opens in theaters on November 2, 2018.


Here’s the official synopsis:

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale. In theaters on Nov. 2, 2018.
