Christopher Law – Safari Guide
Christopher has been an athlete, Art Auctioneer, an singer, an actor, Philanthropist and since 1987, an experienced African Safari Guide. Christopher tells his story about first coming to Africa in 1986 and how it stole his heart and soul. He talks about the African experience and how you too will be never return and be the same. His favorite saying is, “If you have only two places to go in the world, you should go to Africa Twice!
Who is Christopher Law?
Christopher and his wife, Toni Law, who is a legend in Hollywood and author of “The Gentle Jungle”. They live in Newport Beach and travel to Africa for Safaris and to visit daughter Tana, The Executive Director of Kenya Water Wells Trust and their 3 granddaughters that live in Langata, Kenya. I met them both at our good friend, Gene Massy’s office, formally Robert Altman’s office, who directed M.A.S.H. the original movie, Nashville and many more. It was a special day since I have been talking about doing this for close to a year now.
Christopher shared with us his incredibly interesting and full life that led us to speak to him about Duma African Safaris, where he has been designing and guiding safe, secure, custom, photo safaris since 1987.
Christopher was Vietnam Era Veteran, in the Air Force. On the GI bill he attended The Professional Theater Workshop in Hollywood, which led him to become a Model, and a commercial, TV and stage actor. He was in many commercials; Ford, Miller Beer, Spokesman for Revlon, and many others.
He also appeared on a few soap operas, like General Hospital and One Life to Live, had parts in a few movies and on shows like the original Hawaii Five-O, Night Gallery, 4 Seasons. On stage Christopher received great reviews for his role in Gardner McKay’s play, “SEA MARKS” opposite Mara Purl.
I was introduced to Christopher and Toni when I was on the member board at Humanity Unites Brilliance (HUB). Christopher, and I are Founding Arc-Angels in HUB. HUB worked with Kenya Water Wells Trust. He also helped HUB bring our members over to Africa so they could experience and contribute service first hand.
Kenya Water Wells Trust
Toni Law & daughter Tana started Kenya Water Wells, to help with a severe shortage of safe drinking water. In Kenya, as in much of Africa, the lack of safe drinking water causes many severe problems including dehydration, starvation and disease.
The daily chore of fetching water is no small task in rural Kenya and young women often walk as far as ten kilometers to collect what water they can, from a polluted, dirty, hand-dug wells, full of parasites and bacteria. These primitive wells are also structurally dangerous and often collapse when they get deep enough.
In Kenya, the high mortality rate among children under five years old is primarily due to waterborne diseases such as gastroenteritis, diarrhea, malaria, and amoebic dysentery, to name just a few. Contamination from human and livestock waste is also a major cause of water-related diseases, despite the sanitary disposal methods of most of the population.
Flies and other disease-carrying insects are drawn to unsanitary water sites and compound the risk of infection. All of these problems are exacerbated by the fact that economic hardship, inadequate education, and lack of public transport prevent many individuals from seeking healthcare in the early stages of an illness.

Christopher Law is the insiders’ insider on African Safaris. Having lived there for two years, working with the great Archeologist, Dr. Leaky, he knows Africa, loves it, has family there and can Give what is affectionately called: ‘The cooks tour.’ I enjoyed the real Africa that he and his lovely wife Toni shared with my team and me.

“Christopher took my son Harry Lapham on safari when Harry was 15 & 26. It seemed thoroughly well organized and first rate in every respect. Christopher has lived in the region and has many insider advantages in terms of access to unique private estates, and gamekeepers and he seems to have an unerring ability to go where the animals are. My son told us that at lavish tented camps in the evening, groups with other guides would complain about seeing too few prides or herds, or seeing only
other Land Rovers, while it was clear from Harry’s journal and photos that he saw an abundance of animals every day on an up-close basis.
He also learned so much about the animals, I assume from Christopher. To this day he can look at his album and say this is a certain type of antelope, found only in the Ngorongoro Crater, while that’s a different antelope, found on the plains of Tanzania. Then he would tell us how they came to develop different markings.
Christopher is a charming, funny, nurturing person with a wealth of good stories and local lore. The group he assembled for Harry’s tour were lovely families and artists, who bonded during the trip and continue to stay in touch. Harry still raves about the superb accommodations and food. Fitch Hattons’ served the best meals he’s ever experienced.
Finally, Christopher’s advance information on visas, shots, garlic pills and other requirements were clear, thorough and right on point. I’m sure that my son would be pleased to share his photos, experiences etc. if you’d like more information. He’s at firstname.lastname@example.org. For our part, we were thrilled with Christopher’s arrangements and care. Have a lovely trip — I can’t wait to do it myself.

“I have known Christopher and his wife Toni for many years – originating in the art world. I have a game ranch in South Africa and live part of each year there. I hadgone on a photo safari in Kenya and Tanzania in 1974, and felt it was time to do it again with a camera and not a rifle. In January of this year, I joined up with Christopher and his group in Amsterdam for what turned out to be a most enjoyable trip. There were 3 men and 3 women that Christopher took very good care of, using the best of safari camps with excellent food.
He makes travel easy from one area to another, and game viewing is mostly from a vehicle. I would highly recommend that you go on what will be a most memorable adventure. Experience a ride on a camel, have live elephant walk past your vehicle so close that you could nearly touch them and have hippopotamus in the water outside your cabin.
These are only some of the many enjoyable experiences you can expect. In conclusion, Christopher is quite knowledgeable about these areas as well as the flora and fauna. He would make sure that you will see some fantastic sights. Bottom line, go – you will have a ball.
