An unforgettable adventure into “The Pride Lands” …

Following the live-action remake of Disney’s “The Lion King” movie, we  put together a special 10 day safari, following in the paw prints of Simba and his friends.

Come and meet some of the characters in their natural environment: lion cubs like Simba and Nala, majestic adults like Mufasa and Scar – and not forgetting Pumbaa the warthog, Zazu the hornbill and those pesky hyenas – Shenzi, Banzai & Ed.

Various locations in Kenya were the inspiration for the original 1994 animation and the new photo-realistic version is produced with computer-generated images, but based on real video footage taken in Kenya.

In Summary:

Extra nights can be added at any of the camps. 

Game drives in 4×4 from Porini Camps

Your Lion King adventure will start in Nairobi National Park, with a visit to the famous Elephant Orphanage, continue to Selenkay Conservancy & Amboseli with views of the impressive Mt Kilimanjaro, then to Ol Pejeta Conservancy which is home to the World’s last two Northern White Rhinos.

You will continue to Meru National Park, well known for another famous lion “Elsa”, and finally to Olare Motorogi Conservancy, staying at Porini Lion Camp

Olare Motorogi and the surrounding Conservancies have the highest density of free-roaming lions in Africa, as discovered by the Mara Lion Project who conducted extensive research into lion locations and behaviour in 2016. Prides residing within Olare Motorogi Conservancy include the Oldikidiki Pride and the Ridge Pride.
