Our Story

Award Winning Film Producers, Presenters, Directors, Photographers, Environmentalists, Conservationists, a Public Speaker, a Composer, an Author and Educators; Jahawi and Elke Bertolli are the pioneers behind Africa Underwater. 

Both Jahawi and Elke have grown up on the Kenyan coast, spending much of their lives in or on the water. They have seen first hand the changes that have occurred, changes that are noticed by some on the surface but rarely witnessed under the water. In 2013 when Jahawi returned to Kenya after 2 years filming underwater in Thailand he realised that there was no one was telling the stories of the ocean and how it was changing; this is how Africa Underwater was born. The couple produce, direct, research, craft and edit their films and through their films they want to bring the beauty of the underwater world and the threats it's facing to the communities that live along the coast.
