Overview

Numerous locations in Kenya inspired the original 1994 Lion King film and many of the 2019 version’s computer-generated images are based on actual video footage taken in Kenya. This incredible 10-day safari delivers grandstand views of these magnificent settings and up-close encounters with the animals that made the movie famous.

This Lion King adventure officially kicks off at an award-winning camp located in a private game reserve that is an important wildlife dispersal area for animals roaming in and out of Amboseli National Park. This breath-taking conservation area is a haven for a wide variety of animals like lion, cheetah, giraffe, striped hyena and the massive elephants that Amboseli’s known for.

Then be whisked off to a secluded valley in East Africa’s biggest sanctuary for endangered black rhino, as well as a refuge for rescued chimpanzees. You will spend a few days at an intimate eco-camp situated in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, a pristine wildlife area in Kenya’s Laikipia region – and part of our New Safari Bucket List’s best-kept secrets. Track the Big 5 on daily game drives and nature walks with Maasai guides and visit Baraka, Ol Pejeta’s black rhino ambassador.

Meru National Park is your next stop, well known for another famous lion, Elsa from Born Free fame. Meru was one of the two areas in which conservationists George and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness, as well as her final resting place. Rhino River Camp’s magical location flaunts tranquil views of the Kindani River, and each room is designed with its own private meditation area. With Meru National Park on your doorstep, you can see the Big 5 (elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard) within minutes of leaving camp.

Close this extraordinary safari in Kenya at an award-winning tented camp in a stunning location. The pristine Olare Motorogi Conservancy is an exclusive wilderness area that borders the Masai Mara National Reserve and was set aside for wildlife conservation and low-impact tourism. Spend your last few days well off the beaten path while enjoying private game drives and escorted bush walks with Maasai warriors.
