Description by OLDIES.com:

In the darkest region in Africa, the struggle for survival between man and beast has raged since the dawn of time. Jungle infant Boru is orphaned after his mother - cast into the wilderness - is devoured by a ravenous lion. Adopted by nomadic chieftain Shaikh Asgar, Boru and Asgar's son Nikitu grow up to be skilled hunters. When severe drought threatens the future of the tribe, Boru and Nikitu search the countryside for a new fertile home for their people. But before the tribe can relocate, a freak lightning strike turns the tribe's home into a raging inferno.

Africa in Flames, originally released in 1930 as Stampede, was produced on location in the Sudan by the explorer team of Major C. Court Treatt and his wife, Stella, with the assistance of her brother, cinematographer Errol Hinds. Treatt and Hinds were no strangers to wild African travelogue, having produced a successful silent film called Cape to Cairo in the mid-1920s. The fictional story that embellished this subsequent documentary was written by Stella Treatt and was performed by actual villagers from the small Habbania Arab town of Buram, 500 miles southwest of Khartoum.
