Anthony Steel plays a humane British game warden who sets up an African wildlife preserve. Ivory poachers sign up for the preserve's safari tour in hopes of bagging a few pachyderms. Steel and his wife Dinah Sheridan foil the villains, whose leader (Harold Warrender) is shot by the police while trying to escape. The film ends with Steel creating the Mt. Kilimanjaro Game Preserve Park (Ernest Hemingway was not among the board of directors). Filmed in semi-documentary fashion, Where No Vultures Fly was a hit in Britain, where it was originally released as The Ivory Hunter.
