Little Human Planet follows the lives of young children from around the world, giving a glimpse to our CBeebies viewers of how their counterparts live wherever they are. It's a celebration of what makes children different and what makes them the same around the world in a colourful and often surprising voyage of discovery.
In this programme we travel to hot Samburuland in Kenya, Africa. Samburuland is home to strikingly adorned Samburu people. However, due to climate and environment, they often wear very little clothing at all. In parched Samburuland, when the rivers disappear, people, animals and wildlife share the life-giving underground resource of water in harmony. The Samburu dig wells and, the lower the water table falls, the deeper a well must be excavated. The Samburu people provide water in wooden troughs for the animals to drink - their camels, their goats and for any animal that might need water.
It is here we meet a five year old boy called Nintujigwa and his dad. It is a typical day in Nintujigwa's life as we see him and the family use the precious water to have a drink, have a shower and quench the thirst of some animals.
